Amber is an organic gem which forms from the hardened, fossilized sap or resin of coniferous trees. It often contains bubbles and inclusions from air pockets and small plant or animal fragments becoming encapsulated in the sap prior to fossilization. Genuine Amber is more than a million years old and has been prized for centuries as a gemstone as well as sought after as an ingredient for perfumes and a healing agent in folk remedies. Its transparency and color varies, however the most common colors are orange, yellow and brown.
Amber is known as the “Soul Of The Tiger” stone, said to radiate both calming and energizing energies, helping to bring peace of mind and clarity, as well as dissolving oppositions and negative feelings. Also said to aid in letting go of the past and self imposed obstacles, it is believed to offer protection and optimism in taking new directions.
