Amber is a rare and unusual substance. Put simply, amber is a fossilized tree resin or sap. Ancient forests were believed to be very dense and only the strongest trees would survive. If a tree were wounded it would produce healing resin or sap in great quantities. The pinus succinfera or Amber Pine, as it was more commonly called, was one of these trees. Through the passage of time this sap hardened and fossilized. Amber may be anywhere from 1 million years old to 200 million years old; however, most amber today is 30 million to 60 million years old.
Amber may be found in several different colours, including creamy white-yellows (butterscotch), green, lemon (yellow), cherry (red), and orange/ browns called cognac. Amber experts estimate there are over 200 subtle shades of amber. Ombr?? Amber is a variety of amber that features a colour fade of two or more shades. Amber may be found with pine needles, leaves and sunspangles (inclusions caused by heat that resemble fish scales). On occasion, amber is found with insects preserved inside.
This pendant also features a small turquoisestone amongstthe mixed amber.Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in mans history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends its name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue.

It has been a highly popularstone for many years.It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch and healing to the eye. Turquoise is a powerful protector, especially for travelers or those who simply seek adventure.
