Polished or Raw Amber?

Alright, I wasn't sure where to post this. My usually oh so mellow happy 4 month old is showing all the signs of being a hard teether and I want to try amber. I know it has to be baltic and paler is better, but does it make a difference whether its polished vs raw/unpolished. I've seen some beautiful stuff on here, but I need it to be as effective as possible and am wondering if there is a significant difference? Any input is appreciated.

Re: Polished or Raw Amber?

Raw is better, hands down. The polishing process can make it lose some of the effectiveness.

That's what I was thinking, but I'm not an expert in amber. Now to find someone who uses raw amber. Thanks for the input.

Re: Polished or Raw Amber?

Raw is maximum relief and hands down stronger. It's the only amber I use on my own baby. And the only amber I will use for newborn anklets because the polished isn't strong enough for gas relief. I do have some polished necklaces listed in stock and will have some custom slots open soon for raw. I do also have ONE raw medium rounds in honey necklace that I do not have listed but it is also a lithuanian made one if you were interested in that. Just let me know or stalk me on hc on the 19th for my customs slots.

I'd vote for raw. We tried polished with our dd & saw no relief at all. We were so disappointed!
