Amber is a fossilized tree resin (not tree sap). It comes in various shades of pale-yellow, golden-brown, yellow-green, honey, dark red and dark brown (called black) and is transparent or translucent. Tree resin which is less than 100,000 years old is called Copal which becomes Amber when it has finished fossilizing.


Amber comes in a range of different shades, from whitish, to a pale lemon yellow, to brown and almost black. Other uncommon colours include Red Amber, also known as Cherry Amber, Green Amber, and even the rare and highly sought-after Blue Amber.


General Information & Legends

Amber has been used since prehistory (ca. 8,000 BCE) in the manufacture of jewellery and ornaments, and also in traditional healing. There are records of it being used from ancient Greece to modern times. In China, it is used to tranquilise the mind and in Europe, to soothe toothing aches in babies.

Amber has an electrical charge when rubbed, and this is thought to be the origin of the word electricity (its Ancient Greek name being Elektron). It dispels and transmutes negative energy of all kinds and protects the emotional body from psychic attacks and psychic vampires. It shields against taking on other people’s pain whilst undertaking healing work.


It encourages peacefulness and helps develop trust. It brings balance, patience and encourages decision making and is a useful memory aid. It promotes moving forward on your life path, removes mental blocks and helps turn the manifestation of ideas in to reality. Like Citrine, it can help with the manifestation of money and counteract suicidal or depressive tendencies.
