Even though it is considered to be a gemstone, the origin of Amber is fossilized tree resin.
With its ancient energy and rich natural warmth, Amber has long held a fascination for all those who adore crystals. Straddling the line between precious gem and wise old tree, Amber carries with it the weight and knowledge of millions of years.
The Gemstone of Renewal
Scented sweetly with pine, warm to the touch, and swirling in a display of dancing golden light, Amber is a soul-stirring stone. While some crystals are formed in fiery pits and others find their flow in water, Amber is a little bit different. This gem is actually the hardened resin of pine trees. This golden hardened fossilized resin could have been around for 30-90 million years making this gem a truly ancient treasure. The oldest piece of Amber is said to be a staggering 320 million years old. It takes its name from the Arabic word Anbar before being adopted in the middle ages as ambergris and settling on ambre jaune in old French. In ancient Greek, the classical name for amber meant sun - in homage to the amber light that pours down from the sky.
Lively, warm, and steady as she goes - Amber is truly a healing talisman and a glorious good luck charm too. Whether given to teething babies to help quell their cries or helping recovering people pleasers to set loving healthy boundaries, this gem is all about inviting calmness and healing into your life. Amber is the lifeblood of ancient trees and it brings all that energy with it into the here and now. It infuses us with a sense of nourishment, awakens our sacral chakra, and gives us all the tools and empowering vibrations we need to heal ourselves fully.

Mental & Emotional Healing
Renewal and cleansing don’t just heal the body physically but also helps emotionally too. Amber is an exceptional tool for soaking up heavy moods and bad vibes.

Empowerment is essential to our daily wellbeing as this relates to everything from our sense of self-worth in the world and how we engage with the energy of others around us. Amber helps us to bring out that inner strength that ensures we set beautiful boundaries in respectful ways. As Amber has a potent protective quality too it also keeps us safe from situations and individuals that could cause us harm along with quieting the voice of our inner critic too.

Glowing with a golden quality, Amber is a dab hand at helping cleanse and clear the sacral chakra. This delightful gem is all about balance and stability and building the wisdom within your spiritual house. Amber encourages creative self-expression and the purification of one’s own thoughts. The sacral chakra is the center of our passion and intimacy, it’s where we find our sense of joy and even our spiritual connection with others. When blocked, we may feel empty inside - we might have a low or unbalanced libido. We can fall into overwhelming easily and turn quickly to fear and insecurity. When fine-tuned and flowing, our sacral chakra is a sublime source of movement, energy, creativity, and sensuality.
