Amber is fossilized tree resin, which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Amber is made into a variety of decorative objects. Amber is used in jewelry. It has also been used as a healing agent in folk medicine.
There are five classes of amber, defined on the basis of their chemical constituents. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions. Amber occurring in coal seams is also called resinite, and the term ambrite is applied to that found specifically within New Zealand coal seams.
Amber is a natural purifier, esteemed for its ability to draw pain and disease from the body, as well as the mind and spirit, by absorbing negative or stagnant energies and transforming them into clear, positive energy.
