Amber Accents

Amber, the gem of a stone that's not really a gemstone at all, is actually fossilized pine sap. People have collected, traded, and carved Amber for more than 10,000 years.Yet despite our fascination about this stone -- the history of Amber -- still remains a mystery.
The fossils to the left contain a small lizard  and spider encased thousands of years ago.  This is rare and expensive in today’s market. (encased in Honey Amber)
It is known that Amber dates back 40,000 and became this beautiful stone through a process called partial polymerization, this product hardened and in time  the tree sap/resin turned into copal,  once this was formed the volatile oils evaporated
(called turpenes) and Amber was born.
Along the way of course this resin picked up many things and that is good for research, but even better for interest.  Here are just a few of the items and insects that have been found in Amber.

The color of Amber is a combination of yellow-orange-brown that is associated with the color “amber”.   Amber can range from  whitish in color to a pale lemon yellow, to brown and almost black.  There is also red, green, and blue amber.  Blue Amber is the rarest and most expensive and is from the Dominican Republic.  (Blue Amber to the left)

Green Amber is a completely natural variation of Baltic Amber. The green color is a result of plant interaction with the resin. While green is a more valuable color of Amber than brown, the best quality of Amber remains clear, transparent, and flawless.

Slightly softer than Baltic Amber, Dominican Amber is prized for its coloration, including yellow and deep red, as well as the distinctive (and rare) blue and smoky green hues that come exclusively from that area.

Other countries that mine amber include the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Burma (now Myanmar), but the amount produced by all these countries is very small and all the mining is carried out by hand.

Transparent, Red Amber has long been considered special. In the eighteenth century it was much prized by the Chinese for working, and was intricately carved into small figures or scent bottles.

The material was, and still is, extremely rare and expensive. It usually occurs in small pieces, and is only found in Asia


.It was discovered that if an Amber stone was rugged vigorously, it became electrically charged. Believed to carry a negative electrical energy charge, Amber was used to draw power and energy into its bearer. This is one of the many reasons why Amber was prized as jewelry, teething necklaces, healing crystals and used for medical purposes.

It was also believed to have special healing powers.
In today’s world Amber is still used for healing.
