Amber’s warm golden tones and glittering inclusions make it an electrifying gemstone—like this round 7mm round specimen set in a woven sterling silver ring mount, size 7 (USA).
Amber is cut and polished fossilized tree resin. It is believed to embody the energy of the sun, providing protection, emotional balance, strength, and good luck. It has been used medicinally and decoratively by many cultures dating back to the Neolithic period. It can attract light objects through static electricity by rubbing It with a cloth.
Some ancient societies used it as an anti-inflammatory and painkilling device while others considered it a source of eternal youth, or resting place for souls.
