Amber has been used for creating jewellery for centuries. Although it is considered a gemstone it is not, Amber comes from fossilized tree resin that has developed and hardened over many millions of years. It has indeed become more popular over recent years since the release of the film Jurassic Park, especially Amber jewellery that has insects inside it.

Amber is a very popular choice for jewellery, but it also has a number of other benefits.
Amber is believed to be effective in relieving pain, particularly pain associated with arthritis, headaches, and teething. This is thought to be due to the succinic acid that is found in amber. Succinic acid is an anti-inflammatory that can help to reduce swelling and pain.
Amber is also believed to be helpful in reducing stress and anxiety. This is thought to be due to the calming effect that amber has on the nervous system. Amber is also believed to promote relaxation and sleep.
