Properties of Amber
Amber is a crystal that is waxy and a honey-yellow color. Although that is usual you can also find varieties that have tinges of blue, green, brown or red. Amber is a fossil that is created from the resin of the pine tree family that lost their water millions of years ago. This means that it is not a true crystal but is actually a mineraloid. It is found in a large number of places but is most commonly seen in the Dominican Republic, Poland, Latvia, Italy, Spain and Mexico. It also has electromagnetic properties and if you rub an amber stone with a cloth it can build up an electrical charge. This charge will mean it attracts small items that include wood shavings, paper and straw. Amber has been used for thousands of years for its magical properties and below we will consider just how you can benefit from those properties today.
