Amber is not a gemstone or mineral, but fossilized sap from prehistoric trees aged over millions of years. Early physicians prescribed amber for a variety of ailments (headaches, heart problems, arthritis etc.). In ancient times, amber was carried by travelers for protection. To early Christians, amber signified the presence of the Lord. In some Asian cultures, amber is the symbol of courage and is regarded as the “soul of the tiger.” Amber is thought to be a detoxifier of radiation (sun, computers, xrays etc.) and can be placed on one’s desk near their computer. Amber is also said to be excellent for manifestation and recommended for those meeting challenging or frustrating situations.
This Amber is from the Dominican Republic.
