Columbian Amber !
Amber is a form of tree resin -- exuded as a protective mechanism against disease and insects -- that has hardened and been preserved in the earth's crust for millions of years. Often regarded as a gem, amber is actually an organic substance whose structure has changed very little over time, unlike that of other fossilized material, in which organic matter is replaced with minerals.
Over 2,500 years ago it was discovered that when amber was rubbed against cloth, sparks were produced. This energy force was given the name "electricity" after the Greek word for amber, elektron.
Its origins suggest some of its spiritual properties. A tree is a being whose roots sink deep into the earth and whose top rises into the sky. Amber serves as a bridge which connects the energies of heaven and earth, of the spiritual and the physical. Sap is the lifeblood of a tree, which carries and transmits its energy. When worn, amber is said to be able to draw out negative energy and transform it into positive energy for healing and well being. Thus, amber is considered to be a material which can be used to ground spiritual energies into the physical body and fill it with light. It can also work in the opposite way. If you're not feeling enough earth energy, i.e., too much in your head, amber can help you feel more connected to the physical plane.
