Amber is not a stone or crystal, it’s fossilised tree resin that must be at least 10,000 years old to qualify as Amber.
Amber is seen as a bringer of joy and optimism, if you need cheering up wear some amber, the brighter yellow it is, apparently the more light it holds.
It is thought to be bridge between the worlds connecting the energies between heaven and earth. It is a powerful yet gentle cleanser and healer, it draws out and transmutes negative energy.
It is a highly protective and often worn as a Talisman.
