    Yea Salio, Baltic Amber is used for improving the financial matter. You may also wear it for enjoying such properties of it but before this you should be having Leo or Taurus as your zodiac because this talisman is suitable for those people having same Zodiac. Other option is you may also consult with your astrologer and he will suggest you an apt gemstone that will prove to be good for you.
