Understanding Amber

Amber (Anbar - derived from Arabic)  is not actually a stone or a crystal but rather a fossilised resin which comes from the coniferous trees. And although not a crystal this has been used for hundreds of years as a precious gem and its healing properties. As this stone is light enough to float on water it has been found in may places all over the world. The main source of amber comes from South America and Baltic coasts of Europe. Did you know that most amber that exists today is aprox between 30 and 90 million years old.

Amber was and still is worn as a talisman to attract good luck and for protection. If you are wondering what to buy for a 10th wedding anniversary then amber would be a good choice.
