Leopard Head Large Amber Pendant Only (LB 010379)

£215.00

SOLD AS A PENDANT ONLY

Stunning statement pendant of a leopard, hand-crafted from Baltic Amber and Sterling Silver.

Amber is neither a crystal nor a mineral. It is the hardened sap of an ancient tree. It started out as resin secreted to heal a wound. The resin protected the tree from a certain death by making a sticky, protective barrier against fungus. When the tree eventually fell and began to decay, the sap remained. Buried under layers of vegetation, earth and, sometimes, water, the sap continued to harden from the pressure and heat that naturally builds up in such conditions. This fossilised resin is the final product of millions of years of slow processing…..incredible !!
