I have to say, that personally, I’m a big Amber fan. This love affair started years ago when I found my very first piece at a friends house. She’d offered me some huge chunks that were found on the beach of the Baltic Sea (that a photo of the piece below).
Amber is extremely light and certain types are intensely rich with colour. You can use it for healing if you wear it in a piece of jewelry or have a stone you can hold or carry with you.
Here’s a bit of info on Amber and its healing properties
Amber is not technically a gemstone – it’s an ancient tree resin that has solidified and turned into a fossil. Because of this, Amber has very strong connections with Mother Earth and is an excellent grounding stone.
In ancient times, people believed that Amber was formed by the setting rays of the sun. The Vikings called Amber the “tears of Freyja” after their goddess of love.
Amber was used by the Roman gladiators as a protection amulet against danger and fear – it was said to be a stone of courage that helped you face your fears.
Amber is also known as the Mother Goddess Stone due to the fact that insects, plants and even tiny animals were found petrified inside its crystals.
