The Metaphyiscal and Mineralogical Properties of Amber
Amber is one of the few non-mineral gemstones popular with lovers of fine jewelry throughout the ages. Amber is fossilized tree sap which is on average 30-90 million years old. Amber talismans and other amber artifacts dating from the Stone Age abound in archaeological sites in Prussia, Denmark and Schlesswig-Holstein.
Amber is a stone of purification, cleansing and personal empowerment, sacred to Shamanistic practitioners and spiritual healers around the world for aeons of time.

Zeus, enraged at this rash disruption of the harmoy of the spheres, hurled a thunderbolt at the young upstart, catapaulting him to his death, plunging him into the river Eridanus.

Smyth in his description of Aeschylus' lost play The Heliades.
Amber played a role in our early understanding of electricity. If you rub amber on a piece of wool it becomes charged with static electricity in the form of electrons. Place a feather on the ground or a table below the amber and the strong negative charge in the amber will repel the electrons in the feather. Electrons will travel into the ground below the feather, leaving the feather with a net positive charge, and then the feather will be attracted to the amber. Remember that according to the law of attraction, opposites attract. The modern term electron was coined in 1891 by the Irish physicist George Stoney, using the Greek word for amber, because of its electrostatic properties
