Amber is not strictly a crystal. It is ancient fossilised tree resin that has long been used in amulets and talismans. Its oigin illustrates its power: flowing through the tree from its deepest roots to its tallest branches, it is the energy that flows through our blood. Thus Amber has both a grounding and lifing effect on our energies. It helps to balance our chakras and is often placed in the solar plexus chakra, Manipura, for healing purposes.
It has a stimulating effect on both the mind and body and encourages a sunny and positive outlook that reflects its colours. Its main purpose is to open the self to higher vibrations, to allow the creative energy to be drawn upwards and manifested. At the same time it reminds us that patience and wisdom are also necessary to the processes of growth and evolution.
Healing: Very good in aiding the relief of depression and other mental imbalances that cause feelings of disconnectedness. It helps to treat the internal organs, especially the kidneys, spleen, stomach, bladder, liver and gallbladder. Good for overall healing both on physical and emotional levels.
