A fossilized resin, amber has been praised throughout the years for its radiant yellow-orange colour and natural beauty. Its name is derived from the the classical Latin name electrum which means ‘beaming sun,’ an allusion to its semblance to a sunbeam.
In the ancient times, the warm energy that this stone exudes was believed to possess special qualities. Amber has been around for millions of years. It has been used in jewelry making since the Stone Age.

Amber has a yellow-orange colour. It can be transparent or translucent, with a resinous luster. It is a soft stone rated 2+ on the Mohs hardness scale.
Because it is made of plant resin that oozed down from trees, amber usually has trapped debris in it such as leaves, seeds, feathers, and insects.
Historically, in Asia, amber was considered as the ‘soul of the tiger’ and was regarded as the stone of courage. People carried around amber fragments during long travels because it was believed that the stone offers protection as well as treat jaundice.
Amber is also believed to balance emotions, bring good luck, eliminate fear, relieve a headache, clear the mind, drive away negative energy, and help develop patience and wisdom.
