Amber is technically not a crystal, but fossilised tree resin. It has been used for its precious healing properties since ancient times. Amber embodies the light energy of the sun and has a wonderful way of bringing light into dark and transmuting negative energies. Amber helps us to reconnect with ancestral knowledge and is useful for clearing, grounding and Shamanic work. On a physical level Amber is useful for strengthening the body and promoting vitality, and in some cases, for anti-inflammatory purposes.
