Amber- “Solidified Sunshine”
This beautiful organic gem – neither crystal nor mineral, is a protective resin that oozed from living trees in dense, prehistoric forests and fossilized over millions of years. As it drips down trees, it encapsulates insects, spiders, wood, feathers, and other small organisms and pieces of plant matter. As the resin hardens, it loses its volatile components used to protect the tree. Over 1000 extinct animal species and various types of plant matter have been identified in Amber!
Worn and treasured by those even in the stone age, Amber is highly prized in the metaphysical world for its energetic and healing properties – and the life force it carries. It has a very strong connection to the sun and earth as well as ancient insects, plant matter, and other prehistoric organisms that are forever suspended within its golden structure.
