December's Baltic Birthstone

December's Baltic Birthstone:

COLOUR

Cognac Amber - named after its rich orange-brown, brandy-like hue, it remains one of the most sought-after shades of Baltic Amber. Techniques have been perfected in jewellery making to bring out the best in a baltic amber stone. Slow heating of a natural cognac amber piece deepens and enhances its colour, offering a brighter and more translucent shade than natural. Cognac amber is often autoclaved, giving the piece its internal intrigue and decorative bubbles. 

MEANING

Cognac amber is often described as a fire stone, as a result of its sometimes golden flickers of internal light. This internal fire is symbolic of its wearer - a passionate fighter, with the stone offering guidance to channel his or her passion to wisdom and love.

Month: December
Colour: Cognac
Wearer: A passionate fighter
Offers: Wisdom, love and guidance
