Metaphysical Properties of Amber
Energy of Life
Amber is a gemstone that is truly alive with energy. It is a direct channel to Chi and resonates with the energy of the life force found within its resin grasp. Amber is the perfect gemstone to work with when you feel like you need a new lease on life. It is a gemstone of reinvention and repurpose. It has long been hailed, since back in the Stone Age, for its healing and magical abilities. It has been mounted into armor, amulets, jewelry, bed posts, garments and stone altars for its mystical properties. Ancient people proclaimed amber to be solidified droplets of Sunlight, petrified honey, the tears of gods, and liquefied gold. Because amber is actually organic material it is not technically a gemstone but its solidified and somewhat malleable form has brought it an unshakable place in the realm of gemstones. Amber is a natural filter and acts as a prism for the body. It cycles Chi (Life Force) energy around you allowing you to benefit from its primal and prehistoric power. It can bring intrinsic knowledge, ancient memories & visions and promote prophetic dreams of the future. Amber, like quartz, can retain information and therefore when handling a piece of amber you may be connected to ancient memories and thoughts as captured during its original state. It is an incredible substance that will add a new level of mystical merriment to your life.
Amber is a yellow to orange "stone" that is fossilized tree resin. Real amber, when pierced with a hot needle, has a pine/earthy scent. It can feature bubbles of trapped oxygen and even insects, foliage and other material that was in the way of resin when it hardened.
These specimens were mined from Mexico.
