Amber is a transparent or translucent fossilsed tree resin that is usually golden or brown in colour. Perfectly preserved insects can sometimes be seen trapped within the fossilised resin providing a glimpse of ages past. If you rub amber, you may feel an electrical charge.
One of the most precious of all 'crystals', amber has been used for healing purposes for thousands of years, often as a remedy witha similar effect to pericillin. The Old Testament states that it was one of the gems that was incorporated into the breastplate of the Jewish High Priest.
A 'stone' of purification, amber cleanses the body, mind and spirit, as well as the aura and the environment. Finally, amber possesses timeless wisdom and acts as a record-keeper of the earth, awakening memories within us.
