The most obvious quality of amber is its old, old, (very old!) energy. With it comes the accumulated wisdom of the earth and its natural kingdom. You can often see little insects trapped in the amber while it started as a tree resin; this gives the amber stone quite powerful magical properties.Warm, healing, wise, protective, cheerful - these are just some of the properties attributed to the old and beautiful amber stone.
As with any popular gemstone that has a long history of use in various cultures, amber has accumulated its share of mystical properties.
Amber was considered the "soul of the tiger" in Asian cultures and regarded as the stone of courage. Pieces of amber were carried for protection during long travels, as well as used to treat jaundice.
It is also believed that amber:
- Balances emotions
- Attracts good luck
- Eliminates fears
- Relieves headache
- Clears the mind
- Dissolves negative energy
