This unique pendant was handcut from a raw genuine Baltic amber stone from Kalinigrad, to reveal it’s wonderous beauty.
Amber is often called the stone of Liquid Sunshine…yellow for the midday sun and orange, for the fiery sunsets; it was at one point in a more liquid state prior to solidifying into the gem we now know. History tells us that it was one of the very first stones or substances to be used for adornment. Specimens of such adornment date back to 8000 B.C.E.
Amber also holds its own electric charge, it is interesting that the word “electricity” was said to be derived from the Greek word “electron” which, of course, means amber.
Amber, unlike other gemstones, is warm to the touch and often contains insect fragments therefore, it has always been thought to possess life. It is known to be absolutely sacred to worshipers of the Mother Goddess, as it was believed to contain the very essence of life itself – the animating principle. Also known to be related to Akash, or the “Fifth Element” which is the essence of that which binds and governs all other elements (earth, air, fire, water) and the ultimate source of said elements. Symbolic of life and all living things (plants, animals and humans alike) Akasha is related to Amber.
Yellow/Gold/Orange Amber is said to enhance the beauty of the bearer; said to tap into the power of the sun, it also carries a negative electrical charge and is wonderful to draw power and energy into the bearer as well. Amber is said to assist in manifesting one’s desires and heighten intellectual abilities; clarity of thought and higher wisdom.
It is known to bring the energies of balance, purification, protection, psychic shielding, healing, calmness, patience, romantic love and sensuality. It is also known to be a wonderful good luck charm for marriages. Amber is good for abundance, healing, success, vitality and joy.
All of these wonderful properties and associations make amber one of the most widely used and prized magical as well as holistic medical substances of all times and places on Earth.
