Amber Gemstone

Amber is an Organic Gemstone. It is actually a naturally occurring hard and translucent fossilized resin found in some ancient trees. The resin must be several million years old to be called amber. Amber is found in a variety of colors and hues including the black, golden yellow, orange, milky white, reddish orange, green, violet or brownish yellow. Though Amber is considered a gemstone it is technically not a Gemstone or mineral. Amber is said to derive its name from Middle English amber or from Medieval Latin ambra or from Arabic anbar ambergris.

Amber is used as a protective talisman and is said to bring good luck. It suits well for those born under the Zodiacs Signs Leo, Virgo and Capricorn. Amber is used mainly for the purpose of crafting jewelry and other ornamental objects as it is relatively soft and can be easily carved. Amber is also used for the manufacture of beads, mouthpieces, amulets, cigarette and cigar holders and other small ornamental objects. Necklaces, rings and pendants made of ambar is very popular.The Greeks and Romans used amber extensively in their jewelry and crafts. It is said to have been in existence even in the Stone Age and is one of the oldest found stones. The history of amber can be traced back to ancient times. Amber was also used to make varnish and incense.

Amber is found in several places including Germany, Sicily, England, Myanmar and Mexico.

Healing Properties of Amber

Amber is said to protect health and reduce goiter. It is used to treat eye disorders, glandular swellings of the throat and lungs, teeth disorders, bronchial disorders, headache, rheumatic pains, stress, cold and jaundice. Amber gemstone balances endocrine and digestive system. It relieves stomach pain and improves liver and kidney functioning. Amber is said to enhance decision making, memory, luck and strength. Amber is also considered valuable because of the fossils preserved in its inner parts. Sometimes insects or pieces of earth, leaves, pine needles and inclusions of small plant and animal fossils are present in the amber. Amber can absorb and turn negative energy into positive. This is considered a powerful gem but it is not advisable to wear it for long or throughout the day.

As amber is soft, it can be easily scratched. Be certain to store amber jewelry separately from your other jewelry. Amber should be cleaned with soft cloth and stored wrapped in a soft cloth.
