Blue Amber Wire-wrapped Pendant (Stainless Steel) Indonesia
Blue amber is fossilized tree resin from the ancient tree Hymenaea protera.
It is a younger amber, approximately 15 to 20 million years old, compared to Baltic amber, which is 20 to 30 million years old.
Blue amber is mined extensively in only two places, the Dominican Republic and Indonesia. Only a fraction of the amber mined is the rare blue color.
The blue fluorescence comes from trace elements of aromatic hydrocarbon component perylene, according to the GIA.
Sumatran blue amber is naturally a cognac-red tone and Dominican amber is naturally a light honey color.
This amber is sought after for its unusual blue hue, that bursts forth when seen under black light or ultraviolet (UV) light.
Blue Amber is a powerful healer and cleanser of the body, mind and spirit.
It also cleanses and protects the environment.
Blue Amber draws disease from the body, healing and renewing the nervous system and balancing the right and left parts of the brain.
It absorbs pain and negative energy, helping to alleviate stress.
It is also known to be a wonderful good luck charm for abundance, healing, success, vitality and joy.
