Large Copal Amber Pendant (with traces of insects)

This large Copal Amber Pendant measures 6cm tip to base and has a sterling silver clasp for a chain or thong. This piece of amber is smooth and although polished, has been left in its natural shape, as formed by nature millions of years ago. Because amber is a fossilised tree resin or sap it is very light when compared to gemstones of the same size. Amber is fossilised tree resin over 35 million years old, it is classified as copal amber if it is less than 35 million years old.

Amber is the fossilised sap from trees growing millions of years ago. Because it isn’t a stone amber isn’t cold, it has a warmness about it  and is surprisingly light.  Amber can be  in various colours, yellow through various shades to golden brown. There is even green Amber, which although more uncommon has become very popular in recent years.  Therefore an amazing choice of colours to choose from.Amber can be translucent or opaque.

Metaphysically, Amber represents eternal youth. Amber can also bring positive energy and cleanse and then purify negative energy. Amber is a powerful protector, it can clear depression and then help achieve creative self-expression.
