Wood Resin, the Source of Amber


Amber is  a gemstone formed by fossilized tree resin, and has been used as a folk medicine, jewelry, and ingredient in perfumes for ages.  Amber is a natural pain reliever, most commonly used in teething necklaces for babies.  Amber is   at stone strongly associated with the sun and warmth, a form of solidified sunlight.    It is a superb gemstone for healing seasonal affective disorder, increasing vitality,  and healing from illness or injury.  Amber is a stone of the solar plexus chakra.



In ancient Greek mythology amber was created when Phaeton, the son of the sun god Helios, was struck by lightning and fell into a river.  Phaeton’ sisters grief was so immense that they became poplar trees and the tears became the golden amber we know today.
