According to the book Love is in the Earth by Melody, “Amber is a fossilized resin usually golden to yellow-brown in colour. Some amber has been found to contain red, blue, or green hues.” There is a wide variety of variations in amber and these colours form depending on the way that bubbles may have formed or on the tree that the amber came from. Amber is only found in a few locations around the world. For example, in the Baltic region, the resin which forms amber usually comes from pine trees. People have been known to use Amber for its strong natural healing abilities, and are drawn to its natural beauty when used in jewelry pieces for over 50 million years.
“Amber allows the body to heal itself by absorbing and transmuting negative energy into positive energy”. - Love is in the Earth by Melody
