Meanings And Uses Of Amber

Before we discuss the many types of amber and where to find them, let us first look at the meaning of the amber stone and the many uses that it has.

Amber means “to burn”. It is a fossilized tree resin from prehistoric times. The word comes from the Latin word “ambere” which means “to burn”.

This is because when the resin was formed, it would be buried under layers of sand and then over time, the heat from the sun would cause the resin to melt and flow out of the sand and onto the ground.

When the resin hardened again, it became rock. The word “amber” is also derived from the Latin word ambrum meaning “sap”. In other words, amber is tree sap that has hardened over time.

Amber is a beautiful, translucent stone that has been used for thousands of years to bring good luck, happiness, and prosperity.

It’s also known as the “Stone of Happiness” because it can help you find your true purpose in life. The ancient Egyptians believed amber was created from the tears of the sun god Ra.

They used it as an amulet or talisman to protect themselves against evil spirits. Today, people use amber to attract love, wealth, and success.

Amber comes in many colors and shapes. Some are clear, some are cloudy, and others have flecks of color. The most popular type of amber is called nugget.

Nugget-type amber is usually found in small pieces with a smooth surface. This type of amber is often used by jewelers to make jewelry such as earrings and necklaces.

Another type of amber is called rock crystal. Rock crystal is harder than nugget-type amber and is typically used to make beads.

The third type of amber is called fossilized resin. Fossilized resin is a form of amber that has hardened into a solid block. You may see this type of amber at antique shops.

The History Of Amber

It is believed by some scholars that amber may have originated in the Cretaceous period between 80-100 million years ago. However, others believe that it could have originated as early as 300 million years ago. Either way, amber has existed since ancient times.

The earliest records of amber were found in Egypt during the reign of Pharaoh Ramses II (1279 BC). He discovered amber while he was digging through a riverbed near his palace. He took the amber back with him to his home and kept it as an object of great value.

The Romans called amber “lutrum”, which means “the burning thing”. They believed that the amber burned like fire, and they thought that it had magical powers. They even made dolls out of the resin and gave them to their children on Christmas day.

In prehistoric times, people collected amber by scraping off the bark of trees. They would then boil the sap until it became hard enough to be carved into tools and weapons.

In Ancient Egypt, people believed amber came from the tears of the Sun God Ra. They thought amber protected them from evil spirits. They wore it as an amulet or a talisman to keep away negative energy.

During the Middle Ages, amber was considered a rare gemstone. People only began using amber after they discovered how easy it was to work with.

During the Renaissance, amber was considered a symbol of beauty and elegance. It was used to adorn women and men. Men wore amber rings on their fingers and women wore them around their necks.

Today, people still collect amber by scraping it off trees. However, the majority of amber today is mined. Amber mines were once located all over Europe but now are mostly concentrated in Russia.

How To Cleanse Amber

The Amber Light - A Guide To The Amazing Amber Crystal

Cleansing your crystals is a very important step of the process. Cleansing them gets rid of all the toxins and negativity that they have absorbed, leaving room for good energies.

There are different ways to cleanse your crystals. To cleanse your amber, you need to use a mixture of water and salt.

You’ll want to mix equal parts of each until they form a paste. Then rub this mixture into your amber. Make sure to do this slowly and gently, so you don’t break your piece. 

Let it sit for about an hour before rinsing off. You can also buy pre-made cleansers online. These are made specifically for cleaning your amber.

They’re very easy to use. Just pour them onto your amber and let it sit overnight. Rinse your amber off in the morning.

How To Polish Amber

Polishing your amber is optional. If you choose to polish your amber, you will want to use a polishing cloth or buffing pad.

A lot of jewelers recommend using a diamond polisher. However, I’ve never used one myself. Rubbing your fingertips over your amber makes it look more polished.

How To Charge Amber

Like with most crystals, there are multiple ways that you can charge amber. Some methods of charging your crystals include:

Charging your crystal under sunlight – Put your crystal under direct sunlight. Make sure to keep monitoring your crystals as too much sunlight can damage them and cause discoloration.

Charging your crystal in a candle flame – Bring your crystal near a candle flame. Be sure not to hold the crystal directly over the flame, as this can damage your crystal.

Damaged crystals will not charge properly, and thus their energies won’t be able to flow through them.

Charging Your Crystal With Earth Energy – Take your crystal outside and bury it on earth. This method works best if you have access to dirt. Dig up some dirt from where you live and bury your crystal in it.

Cover it with soil and then put it back down. Leave it alone for about two weeks. After two weeks, take your crystal out of the ground.

Charging your crystal with moonlight – Place your crystal next to a window during the full moon. Moonlight has a positive energy that helps recharge crystals.

Charging your Crystal With Water Energy – Fill a bowl halfway with water. Add your crystal to the water. Keep it submerged for about 30 minutes. Remove the crystal from the water and rinse it off.

Charging your crystals is super important because, without proper charging, your crystals may not work at all. It’s recommended that you charge your crystals every day.

By charging your crystals, you help to recharge them and make them stronger. This in turn allows you to get more out of your crystals.
