What is Amber?

Amber is generally referred to as a fossilized tree resin formed after millions of years of being under the Earth. The resin has to undergo and survive through various forces such as extremely high or low temperature, rain, exposure to sunlight, bacteria, and more to turn into Amber. The beautiful lustre of Amber stone makes it look incredibly stunning, when worn as a ring, pendant, or bracelet. The warm amber color of this stone illuminates elegance and splendor.

Amber Stone Meaning

Amber (Kaharua stone) is a semi-precious stone growing organically, and the older it is, the more powerful it is. This warm-hued stone radiates like the sun and carries tremendous energies. Its name is derived from the Lower Saxon word "Börnen," meaning "burning". Since it stays underground for years, tiny insects and creatures get trapped in the resin during its process of solidifying or fossilizing. Amber is categorised as an organic gemstone. The most interesting thing about this stone is that it develops magical properties and imbues Earth's energy during its formation.

On the other hand, having a balanced Swadhisthana Chakra removes the lack of trust and gives a strong sense of sexuality. The person becomes courageous and more creative.

Stir it until it's fully dissolved and put the Amber stone in this solution. If it floats, then it's genuine, and if it sinks, it is a fake one. Another way to check is the Hot Needle Test, where you push a heated needle against the stone. On doing this, a natural Amber stone will emit the smell of an old punged tree, and the needle will hardly go in. If the needle goes in easily, the stone is fake.

  • It was like the heavens finally decided I had enough austerities

    Namaste Sri DharmaDev Arya & Friends, Sisters and Brothers, sorry for long absence and missed you all. Been a busy 3 odd months. Dropping by to say hi to everyone and also to mention that I'd done a 40-day discipline with a Navratna Mala which I got from Rudra Centre India. The results? Absolutely wonderful. For 10 years, everything in my life was blocked and there was no movement. I was neither here nor there. "In limbo" was the best description I could give. Upon 30-odd days of wearing the Navratna mala, everything started happening. All that was stagnant began moving at last. And fast t close
