Amber is not technically a crystal but is in fact fossilized botanic resin. It varies in colour, from yellow to brown and reddish brown and can often be transparent.
It has an electrical charge when rubbed, in ancient times the Greeks called it ‘elektron’, a word referring to the sun…..it is thought this is where the word electricity is derived from.
Also in Greek mythology it is said that Amber was created when Phaeton, son of the Sun god Helios was struck by lightening and subsequently died. His sisters were so overcome with grief that they turned into poplar trees and from this the tears that they shed then became droplets of Amber.
The energies from Amber are warm because it is believed to be solar energy. It will bring to the person wearing it a sense of health and well being, it also carries within its energy an organic life, making it feel incredibly friendly.
Amber is a purifier, it acts on the energetic, emotional and physical levels to transform negative energies into clear usable energies.
Because Amber is a form of solidified sunlight, (unlike other crystals and stones that were born from the depths of the Earth) it is an excellent source of beautiful Light energy. Due to its light carrying properties it is excellent in assisting those that can become depressed in the winter months, stimulating the metabolism, physical energy and the flow of energy along the meridians of the body.
