Tree Gemstone


I was reading a book the other day, when they discribed the prince (yes, the books I read involve princes) that has his neck dripping in amber. I said to myself "I want to be dripping in amber!", of course thinking that this would never happen. But somehow I was strolling by my aunt's jewelery table and what do I find? A necklace made of amber! I knew it had to be.

Of course being a completely believer in the power of crystals/gemstones and how they have the mystical qualities of being able to draw you to them when you are most in need, I put it on right away and felt like the amber had called me. Here is what my crystals book says about amber:
"In Ancient Greek times, it was considered to be the juice or essence of the setting sun, charged with solar energy and sacred to Helios, the god who was said to drive the sun across the sky in his chariot. In healing, the golden-yellow color of amber is warming and cheering to the spirits, bringing a sense of renewal and recharged energy levels."

the stones are absolutely exquisite. oooooh to be dripping in amber.

You seem like the perfect candidate for Linda Goodman's book "Star Signs" Great book, comes in paper back and has all kinds of good info of that sort. I read it when I was about your age, oh how did I get so old..... If you do read it let me know what you think, I loved it when I was younger, it brought a lot of mysticism into my life, always fun to read about things even if you don't believe it all. Linda is a great writer and very well known as a astrologer but that book goes into many other things too.

That necklace is gorgeous, what a beautiful piece.

You are definitely dripping in amber, lady! What book were you reading, btw?

Amber isn't technically a stone/crystal at all, it's fossil tree resin (kinda like sap). My grandma apparently had a thing for it, I have a pretty cool amber brooch that was hers.

Ruta said...

i love the necklace. amber is pretty common to me since i'm from Lithuania and we basically have amber everywhere you look. it's just one of those things we have and although i do think it's gorgeous it's not that big of a deal. but i love this necklace. so pretty.

SUCH a beautiful necklace. I love how these kind of necklaces have so much character that we're inclined to throw on just a basic tank or tee so they can truly stand out :*) The amber looks beautiful against your rich brown hair.
