Many people think Amber stones are actually stones (minerals). In reality however they are fossils. Fossilized tree sap to be exact. Amber is not a mineral, in fact it is more of a natural plastic and there is not an exact chemical composition that makes up amber stone for that reason.
Amber stone feels almost warm to the touch. Minerals feel cool to the touch but amber does not conduct heat the way mineral stones do. If it gets hot enough, amber will actually burn.
Amber can be made to attract electro static electricity. Simply rub it with a soft cloth and it will attract small pieces of paper placed near it.
Most amber stone is a warm golden yellow color, but the colors can run between shades of yellow, orange, red, white, brown, green and a bluish almost black color.
Everyone that spends long periods of time on a computer should keep an amber stone on their desk due to its ability to detoxify the body from all types of radiation (sun, computers, xrays, etc.)
An excellent healing stone, not only is it stronger than some other healing stones but also has the ability to take negative energy that could be causing the illness and transmutting it into positive energy that helps heal the affected area.
An excellent stone for those working with the Law of Attraction due to its ability to help in manifesting your desires.
