Subject: Questions on Amber
Date: 07/29/10
From: Arsenio
To: Healing Crystals

Dear sir/madam,

First of all, I would like to thank Ms. Kristi for her advice on what crystals to use regarding my ailment (Parkinsons). My last order was received in good condition. As I was browsing for some other interesting stones, Amber got my attention. I gather that Amber is not a Crystal, and here are my questions:

1. Why was it included in the crystal category?
2. For its tiny size, how will it be able to detoxify our body or maintain it in good health?
3. From what country are the Baltic Amber in your site from, and are they effective despite their tiny size?
4. How come it does not need clearing?
5. Can a hole be drilled with ordinary metal drill bit?
6. Is it recommended for children use about 9 years old.?
7. What is the difference in using a crystal when kept in a pocket (or pouch) and that as a jewelry (hung as a pendant)?

Thank you,

Arsenio

 

 

 

 

Good Morning,

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am very happy to be of service :)

I love Amber! It is such a wonderful, warm, supportive piece :) So let's get to your questions!

1. Why was it included in the crystal category?
I am not part of the team that sets up the website, but I think that a lot of newcomers and beginners may not be up to date on the geological info or make up of Amber (for instance, they may not know it is a resin or that it is amorphous meaning no crystal structure), so it makes sense to list it along with everything else so that people can find it easier and learn about it too!

2. For its tiny size, how will it be able to detoxify our body or maintain it in good health?
Have you ever heard the phrase "Good things come in tiny packages"? It really does not have much to do with the size of the piece, but more about the strength of the energy inside :) Amber has amazing, wonderful, strong energy. And to quote another American catch phrase, "A little dab will do ya".

3. From what country are the Baltic Amber in your site from, and are they effective despite their tiny size?
I do not know where the Baltic Amber on this website comes from, but I will pass along that question and see if I can get you a more specific answer :) True Baltic Amber only comes from the coasts of the Baltic Sea. Baltic Amber is heavily mined from Russia, Poland and other Eastern European countries. And yes, most definitely they are extremely effective :)

4. How come it does not need clearing?
I think clearing or not clearing is a personal choice. I personally believe all crystals/stones/resins need to be energetically cleansed at some point. Sometimes, people who write crystal books state something like this (this stone does not need clearing) and other people take their word for it and pass it on. And still others, when working with the piece, intuitively feel that it does not need clearing. I think you should decide what you feel to be true for you — that is really the best way in my opinion :)

5. Can a hole be drilled with ordinary metal drill bit?
I would not recommend it. There is a special tool called a drimmel that is used to drill holes in stone/crystals. The drill bits are tiny and will not split or break the piece being drilled. Here is an article that may be useful when it comes to drilling holes in stones:

6. Is it recommended for children use about 9 years old?
Yes, most definitely, but with caution. For instance, you would not want your nine year old putting it in their mouth, or accidentally swallowing it, etc. I would say with the right teaching and guidance it will be fine :)

7. What is the difference in using a crystal when kept in a pocket (or pouch) and that as a jewelry (hung as a pendant)?
Crystal jewelry normally has direct contact with the skin and that is best way to get optimal energy exchange (healing,etc).
Carrying a crystal in a pocket or pouch means that it will not touch the skin directly, but will still send its energy out to the body. Most folks I know, will put their hand in their pocket and hold the crystals a few times during the day in order to have that direct contact.

These are all great questions — thank you so very much! I wish you continued success as you journey with your crystals :)

With love and crystal blessings,

Kristi
