Amber is considered a gem, but it's not a mineral or stone in the traditional sense. Instead, it's the resin from certain trees that has hardened and fossilised over many centuries. Amber is believed to absorbs pain and negative energy, helping to relieve stress. Amber clears depression, stimulates the intellect and promotes self-confidence and creative self-expression. It encourages decision-making, spontaneity and brings wisdom, balance and patience. Amber is great for the times when you want to focus on health and healing. While it’s not technically a gemstone, it is often used similarly to natural crystals and has similar energetic and healing properties.
