Metaphysical Properties

Amber has been traded and for centuries. And we mean way back. Amber had been distributed from Northern Europe all the way down to the Mediterranean, Asia, and even parts of Africa. The Norse believed that amber came from Freya's tears. 

In a dream, it has been associated with a voyage. Some had ascribed it powers of calming, healing, or relaxation. It was a therapeutic stone for many, some believed that certain carvings into animals could enhance this property of the stone. To others, it signified a kind of power, destiny, and the future.
