What you may not realise is that Amber isn’t a crystal. Instead, it is a resin from a tree that has solidified and then become fossilised. However, that does not lessen its usefulness as a gem in your healing crystal collection.
Amber has been popular for a long time, especially for jewellery pieces. Larger gems are often set into necklaces or chunky bracelets, giving wearers the perfect opportunity to have the stone close to them.
Amber Grounding Energy
As you might expect from something that derives from nature, Amber has strong Earth connections and is considered very grounding. Amber is also used for drawing out disease, healing, cleansing and clearing chakras.
Amber can work by absorbing negative energies and pain, that is coursing through the body, which in turn provides the body time to settle, restore and re-balance itself.
From a spiritual perspective, those that turn to Amber should feel self-sacrificing and philanthropic – ready to help others. This stone also brings about a sense of understanding and wisdom.
Having Amber around your home can encourage trust to build with the loved ones who reside there. Amber can also create a sense of peace and serenity.
If you want to use Amber for grounding purposes, then stimulating the navel chakra should help. If you are wearing a piece of Amber for a long period, then on the throat or wrist is best.
This bright gem has sunny energy; use it whenever you are feeling depressed or in times of high stress. Using this stone regularly should promote patience, better decision-making, and an ability to take thoughts through to actions.
Amber should be a golden brown to yellow. If you see green gems, then they have been artificially altered. They are not a rare gem and can be found in many countries, including Britain.
Whilst it is not everyone’s cup of tea, some gems include an insect or vegetation trapped inside the resin and are highly prized! But, as always with collecting crystals – purchase what you are drawn to the most.Tweet
