AMBER

Amber is technically not a gemstone or mineral, but a fossilized sap from prehistoric trees that has aged over the course of millions of years. Amber is usually thought of as yellow golden in hue, but amber also can be found in shades of milky white, red-orange, green, black and even (very rarely) violet.

Early physicians prescribed amber for headaches, heart problems, arthritis and a variety of other ailments. In ancient times, amber was carried by travellers for protection. To early Christians, amber signified the presence of the Lord.

In the Far East, amber is the symbol of courage; Asian cultures regard amber as the ‘soul of the tiger’; Egyptians placed a piece of amber in the casket of a loved one to ensure the body would forever remain whole.

A Solar stone, closely associated with the power of the Sun and masculine energies. For many centuries Amber has been considered one the most potent of magical gems and it is a favoured stone of witches. The Chinese believed that it was formed from drops of Dragon’s blood which solidified when they hit the ground. Sacred to the Goddess Freya, whose magic girdle ‘Brisingamen’ was carved from the stone, it is often used in magic for passion or fertility. The Romans believed that as a talsiman Amber protects the body from physical harm and Gladiators would often carry such a charm for protection. Holds within it the power of magical attraction and can be used in charm bags, worn as jewellery and held when meditating or praying to draw good things into your life. Replaces unhappiness and depression with bright, Solar energy and can be used to help you become more comfortable with your masculine side and your natural aggression and anger. Physically it is healing to the chest and throat and oil of Amber is still used today as a rub for such problems. The stone is said to balance the bodies’ electrical energy and strengthen the central nervous system. Mentally it helps combat eccentric behaviour, anxiety and indecisiveness.
