Amber is a fossilized tree resin also known as the blood or life force of the tree. Its energies include beauty, healing, love, protection and strength. Amber is linked to the Norse Goddess Freya. It is said that Freya would lament the absence of her husband ‘Odur’ when he was off on one of his long journeys and that she would sometimes wander the earth looking for him. The tears she cried as she missed him so much turned to gold when they fell onto the earth and amber when they fell into the sea. Amber is used as an ingredient in perfumes, as a healing agent in folk medicine and made into jewellery and charms. Weight 1 - 1.5 grams approx.
