Amber is a gem stone with metaphysical and physical properties. The truth is that amber is a fossilized resin that has been used in history as a protective and healing stone. Amber has been found all over the world from the Dominican Republic, Britain, to ancient Egypt. Hardened tree resin that is less than 100,000 years old is called Copal. Amber from the Baltic or Dominican Republic is 25 million to 40 million years old. Archeologists have found carved amber in graves dating over 2000 BC. This rich history with the Earth gives Amber a strong, cleansing and healing energy both metaphysically and physically.
Amber’s energy is very healing and protective. Amber has an electromagnetic quality. It will build up an electrical charge, so jewelry that sits against your skin is more effective for healing. It was called ‘elektron’ by the ancient Greeks. This is said to be the origin of the word ‘electricity’.
Today, it’s uses range from teething necklaces and bracelets for babies, protection from psychic attack, and removing toxins from organs. Working at a health store opened my eyes to Amber’s uses for physical healing. Dozens of mothers I interacted with swore by its effects on their baby’s teething pain. Amber also aids in emotional healing from depression, clearing and opening of chakras, and physical self healing. Wearing the stone around a particular energy point in the body will help cleanse your auric field.
I love to warm it in my hands. It smells devine. Amber is one of my most favorite crystals.
Yes! A mom I know had her little girl wearing an Amber necklace for teething. I think it’s wonderful and helps the children get in the habit of having stones on them for multitude of reasons for years going forward.
