Green Amber Pendant
Amber is fossilized tree resin which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Much valued from antiquity to the present as a gemstone, Amber is made into a variety of decorative objects and used in jewellery.
Amber was known as "elecktron" to the ancient Greeks because rubbing a piece of amber with a soft cloth gives it an electric charge, a rare property among precious stones. The ancient Germans knew amber as "bernstein" (literally, "burn stone") because they valued it for its use as incense rather than as a precious stone.
Green Amber gets its hue from spending time in a marshy environment amid decaying organic matter. Amber can be ancient, millions of years old, so it does not need to be found in a marsh for it to have spent some time there in the past. In the case of Baltic green amber, jewelers heat the surface with oxygen or place the amber in a vacuum gas chamber, or autoclave, along with nitrogen or argon. This clarifies the stone and improves its color. This type of treatment is common with all precious or semi-precious stones, not just amber.
Amber is well known for its ability to dispel and cleanse a person or area of negative energies. It also has Past Life Connections. Amber is often used in meditations or spells that concern discovering and/or contacting our former selves.
Green Amber is also a great stone for balance because the stone has so many uses and many elements, it is considered as “the stone of balance.” Wearing Green Amber around your neck or wrist is to be considered as great protection.
