Amber Gemstone


Amber Gemstone possesses great protective powers

It is is fossilized tree resin. It is used as an ingredient in perfumes, as a healing agent in folk medicine, and as jewelry. It is sourced specifically from the Pinus succinifera tree. The fossilization of this can be traced back to the Tertiary period, meaning that stones formed approximately 50 million years ago.

The formation process of the stone begins with transformation of resin to copal. The transformation is triggered by high temperatures and pressure of overlying resinous sediments. The exposure to heat and pressure repels terpenes, which can cause deterioration and decay. Through time and resistance, the resin eventually hardens and becomes fossilized into stone.

Many trees produce resin, but most will not actually produce it. The tree resin must be very resilient and resistant to decay. The majority of resin deposits cannot handle prolonged exposure to sunlight, rain and extreme temperatures. It originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, it sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions. Stones with inclusions of plants and animals are costly and are rare. Collectors do collect these gemstones.

It occurs in a range of different colors, but it is mostly yellow, orange or brown. Golden-yellow is usually hard, translucent resin from evergreen pine trees. It can also occur whitish to pale lemon-yellow and brown to nearly black. The Dominican Republic is known to produce rare blue coloured resin. There is also rare green and red colored. Red coloured is sometimes referred to as "cherry amber".

Wear its Jewelery , carry a peice in your pocket, or rub soft resin on your spin to keep you safe from harm.
