Original WENDESTEIN
Things to know about Amber

The amber contains a fascinating, millennia-old history:

Created 52 million years ago – from the resin of the golden larch. 52 million years ago, the world was boisterous, pure, and unlike today. During this time, amber was created.
When amber is found in the earth, it is completely natural, about 92% are opaque. Only about 8% of the amber that is found are transparent by nature (typical would be cognac – amber color).

The WENDESTEIN (Amber Nugget) is a piece of untreated natural amber. It is mainly to be found in the Baltic States, in Lithuania. Natural amber consists of approximately 80% carbon, 10% oxygen, 10% hydrogen and small parts of sulfur.

The untreated natural amber

It is found in the earth, as the WENDESTEIN ultimately looks in its shape, color and size. In the turning stone, one side is sanded and polished so that its uniqueness and beauty are fully effective. The second side remains untreated in the original state, as it touched the earth for the first time 52 million years ago as a viscous tree resin.

Only in this untreated form, all the positive qualities of natural amber, such as 52 million years of stored uranium energy, retain antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. The Wendestein (natural amber) was not subjected to any kind of treatment.

The treated natural amber

Natural amber is treated so that it becomes clear – transparent and maintains its typical brown amber color.
The treatment – clarification of the amber – takes place in autoclaves. You can imagine this as an oven in which the pressure is about 40 bar and the oven is heated to about 200 to 300 degrees Celsius.

The amber stays in this oven for four to twelve hours, until the trapped oxygen migrates through the heat and pressure to the surface of the amber and then evaporates.
In this treatment, all the positive bacteria and properties that the amber has ever possessed are killed and thus it is sterile.

The WENDESTEIN, however, remains completely natural, as Mother Nature has created it. This is also confirmed in an enclosed certificate. To document the authenticity of a Wendestein, we have lasered a “W” into each Wendestein.

The pressed amber

Pressed amber is made from small amber grains (like sand). This is heated to about 300 degrees Celsius until it becomes viscous (like very thick honey).

Subsequently a color (that the market requests) is added. In this viscous state, the mass is pressed into shapes, such as pipes, plates, etc. After cooling, it is ground into balls, cylinders, etc., and thus comes on the market as “genuine” amber. This type of amber has absolutely nothing to do with natural amber.

To sell pressed amber as genuine amber is covered by law, since the base material consists of amber. This is a pure monetary rip-off and it abuses the buyers lack of knowledge.

The Sumatran amber

Amber occurs in many parts of the world. Another kind of amber used by WENDESTEIN, in addition to the Baltic natural amber, is amber from Sumatra. It differs both in age (about 20 million years old), as well as in appearance (dark, beige and white shades), as well as the descent of the tree.

The Sumatra amber is a leaf tree that is resinous (as a reminder: the Baltic amber originates from the amber pine, a conifer). This amber was discovered only by chance a few years ago, during the mining of coal. Due to its special coloring and the extraordinary beauty, it is a neat addition to the range of WENDESTEIN.

History of amber
Wendestein
The history of amber – Wendstein – goes back to the Celtic era. Back then, amulets served as protection against dangers and evil spirits.

The Wendestein in the present time is supposed to protect against everyday dangers, e.g. while driving, at work or during leisure time. Furthermore, the Wendestein helps to lead safely and well through these uncertain times and provides for the protection of your family.
Whenever you want to have someone special protected, the Wendestein is a very personal gift which says: “You are important to me! I want nothing to happen to you and that you are always well!”.

Wendestein
There is hardly a single person in the world who does not want to change something, might it be at work, in partnership, in health or many other things. In order to achieve this goal – change – and not to lose sight of it, it requires discipline and persistence.
On the other hand, you need a constant companion that reminds you of this goal of change.

Whenever you slip off this path, the Wendestein functions as the anchor, the post it, carried in the pocket or around the neck, to remind you of your goal again. He is thus a constant companion who helps to create positive changes through positive thinking.
Ill people have the biggest desire for change. Giving them a Wendestein is a special gesture and shows the strong bond with this person.

A gift that goes far beyond the normal extent of a gift. It symbolizes: “I am here for you. You are not alone, and I wish for you to get well again.”

Balance
Wendestein
People feel comfortable when they have found their inner center – their equilibrium.

This is achieved through meditation, mental disengagement, leisurely strolling through the day, or with a Wendestein bracelet.
With the help of the special filling of the bracelet the body immediately reaches the state of its inner balance.
The kinesiological test is proof enough, but ATTENTION: for very few people this test also shows positive results if they only carry a cord or something similar around the wrist. When carrying a product from Wendestein, every person immediately is in their midst – in balance.

Nowadays it is still common for infants to wear an amber necklace as soon as they are teething. The reason for this is that amber has an anti-inflammatory effect and makes teething easier for children.
