June 2022 Stone of the Month - Amber
The beautiful stone of Amber is a lightweight powerful piece of nature that comes in transparent and sometimes opaque hues of yellow, orange, brown, and sometimes shades of reds and even blues (rare).
Amber is an incredible natural purifier. It is known for its ability to draw pain and dis-ease from the physical body, as well as the mind and spirit, by absorbing negative or stagnant energies and transforming them into clear, positive energy. It is extremely grounding and balancing especially with its origin from trees.
Amber was known by several names, most notably the Latin succinum, or “juice” from the extinct Pinites succinifer trees from which it was thought to have been originally produced from sap. Contrary to what some may believe, Amber is not formed from tree sap, which is fluid that circulates through a plant’s vascular system, but from resin, an aromatic, semi-solid substance secreted though the plant’s epithelial cells.
It is an oldie but goody!! It was discovered 320 million years ago! This provides evidence to its incredible power.
Because of the way it is organically formed, Amber can work as an amazing time capsule. It happens to preserve creatures at an evolutionary point that would otherwise be unknown to us. The more valuable pieces of Amber typically have prehistoric bugs or creatures preserved within them.
Amber is considered to be one of the most effective energetic healing substances, drawing off toxins, pain, and disease from the body and stimulating the immune system and the body’s other natural healing mechanisms to rebalance and heal itself. Amber can be placed directly on a wound or over the internal organs to promote healing, or at the thymus gland to restore balance to the entire system.
The yellow hues within Amber activate the Solar Plexus Chakra, the energy distribution center and the chakra of relationships. it is also associated with the Throat and Sacral chakras.
Amber is a wonderful stone to work with for depression, as it will stabilize your emotions and continuously remind you why your life is so valuable and precious. The energies of Amber will help lift your emotions and bring optimism into your perspective of life.
This crystal is also amazing to work with when you need to relieve stress and anxiety. It will dissolve all traces of physical and mental exhaustion, and it will help you eliminate your fears and worries.
Amber provides the physical and emotional bodies with a protective shield capable of removing toxicity from one’s life and relationships.
