SUMATRA BLUE AMBER CRYSTAL
The blue reflections in this special Amber are caused by natural Sulfur inclusions and is extraordinary in that when you look at it (reflecting light) it appears blue, but when you look through it (at a light source) it displays reddish brown hues. Pictures show amber in natural light and ultraviolet light.
Amber is a powerful protector, aligning one’s everyday self to higher spiritual realms. It is a valuable tool for tapping into ancient wisdom, and for recalling past lives, whether a regression from this life or from a past life, in order to break negative patterns or to gain a better understanding of how past experiences can better assist one now.
Amber is one of the world’s oldest and most coveted treasures, a “Gold of the Sea” intrinsically formed by light and life, preserved by time and washed upon the shores for humanity, a talisman of beauty, protection and renewal. It has been portrayed as drops of the sun, tears of the gods, hardened honey, and sunlight solidified, and is as desired today as it was in the most ancient cultures, utilized as far back as the Stone Age for its pleasing warmth of color, value in adornment, and its magical and medicinal properties.

Amber belongs to a small class of organic gems, neither a crystal nor a mineral, but a biological product of nature, a protective resin that oozed from living trees in dense, prehistoric forests and fossilized over millions of years. It is highly prized in the metaphysical world for its energetic and healing properties, and for the marvelous Life Force it carries.
As a love crystal, golden-orange Amber is a symbol of beauty and tenderness, a good-luck talisman for increasing natural radiance and attracting lasting love. It may be used to call in a twin soul, or for protection against negative outside influences and interference. It is a wonderful gem for assuring promises and has been used in the renewal of marriage vows.

The two major amber producing areas are Sumatra and Kalimantan. Kalimantan amber is very similar to Baltic amber in appearance. Sumatran amber is special. It is found in the regular ‘amber-color’ and also in reddish hues, olive green and believe it or not – blue. It used to be the only real blue amber was found in the Dominican Republic and a small amount in Mexico. Blue amber from the Baltic area is heat and chemically treated.
The blue amber is beautiful. When look at the amber in reflected light it is blue, but when looking through the amber it looks reddish brown.
The Indonesia amber polishes well and is almost indistinguishable from Baltic. The blue amber is a wonderful substance that equals or surpasses Dominican blue. Like Dominican blue, Sumatran blue needs natural light to show the beauty.
