This piece of amber will have one small face polished.
Amber is a derivative from extinct groups of trees which during their time produced mass amounts of resin. Amber deposits date everywhere from the Eocene, Oligocene, and the Miocene. The resin protects trees by filling in any open gaps in the tree's bark covering. These gaps and gashes form when a tree is damaged or fed on by certain insects. The resin fills this hole and acts as a seal. Resin also protects the tree from diseases as it contains antiseptic properties. Amber forms similarly to other fossils. Over time it loses its volatiles such as oils, acids, and other compounds, allowing it to begin the hardening phase. It must also become buried in very low oxygen environments.
Amber is said to help draw out disease within the body. It helps regenerate the nervous system and brings balance to the body. Many also use amber to help alleviate stress and reduce negative energies. It stimulates the intellect, helping bring out self-confidence along with self-expression.
