Amber is technically not a gemstone or a mineral, it's a fossilized sap from prehistoric trees. Amber is usually thought of as yellow golden in hue, but amber also can be found in shades of milky white, red-orange, green, black and even (very rarely) violet. Amber is particularly effective on the Naval/Sacral Chakra and helps with the stomach, kidney, liver, bladder, spleen and gallbladder problems. Amber can be used to transform negative vibrations into positive ones. It brings an easy, sunny attitude and promotes good luck and success also known as liquid sunshine giving a protective coating around your aura. Amber creates positive energy and is a beautiful warm stone to wear. It is a powerful healer that gives the person who wears it a lovely sense of health and healing.
The two main sources of amber today are the Baltic states and the Dominican Republic. Amber from the Baltic states is older, and therefore preferred on the market, but amber from the Dominican Republic is more likely to have insects in it.
