Amber





No diamonds, emeralds or pearls for me, I'll take amber. Not only is the color entrancing the origin and composition are enigmatic. Amber is fossilized tree resin, most of it is between 30 and 90 million years old and often contains "inclusions" which could be plants, insects or small animals. It occurs in many colors from whitish to black, my favorite being the honey yellow-orange. Amber contains organic energy and is electromagnetically alive. It has been used as a healing stone since ancient times. Amber is one of the birthstones for November and also symbolizes 10 yrs of marriage. It is associated with the signs of Leo and Aquarius. The fact that it's organic along with it's warm and delicious color is why I love it.
In case Santa is interested here is where the earrings were found.

So, so lovely. I agree with you -- I would take amber over diamonds anyday! Plus, you never know what cool little things are floating around in there...
