It is said that Amber is one of the Worlds most oldest and coveted treasures. It is said that Amber is prized as a natural purifier, known for its ability to draw pain (children and babies wear as a teething soother) and disease from the physical body, as well as the mind and spirit, by absorbing negative or stagnant energies and transforming them into clear, positive energy. This stimulates the body’s own mechanisms to heal itself. It is said to increases vitality and is said that Its vibration of life force brings warmth to the inner being and imparts more of this energy into the system.
Did know that Blue Amber is a fossilized Tree Resin, thought to be millions of years old, and that this amazing natural greenish blue colour observed in this amber, only sourced from the Dominican Republic and Indonesia, is actually fluorescence stimulated by ultraviolet (UV) light. Only a very small amount of Amber has this beautiful Blue colour.
This is how it works, when natural light strikes blue amber on a white surface, the light passes right through, and is refracted by the white surface. The result is the slight blue hue of blue amber. When the same natural light strikes the amber on a black surface, the light is not refracted by the black surface, but by the actual amber. Hydrocarbons in the blue amber shift the sun’s ultraviolet light down in frequency, resulting in the glow of blue amber so when under artificial light, this amber appears like ordinary amber, but under sunlight and UV light it has an intense fluorescent blue glow. When held against the sun it will appear like ordinary amber, and under ultraviolet light it will glow a bright milky-blue. This effect can be compared to the ocean, which, although transparent, can appear anything from light blue to dark blue to black, depending on depth, mass, salinity, etc. REF Geologypage.
