Amber is the fossilized resin from prehistoric trees that date as far back as 50 million years ago. In nature, the resin would have been used by the tree itself as a natural antibiotic or preservation from infection or injury. Worn for centuries as a natural remedy for pain relief, amber was used to promote fast healing and to boost the body's own immune system. Amber has been at the center of many scientific studies which clearly indicate that its therapeutic properties are very significant.
Wearing amber may also protect us against the negative influences of electrical equipment like computers, televisions, mobile phones and microwave ovens. Even more amazing about amber is that the chemical properties of the resin, when formed, act as a natural embalming agent with both drying and anti-microbial properties. Ancient Egyptians actually used pine resin as an embalming agent, and doctors in the War, lacking anything else, would sometimes slap tree resin on a wound as a disinfectant and saved lives that way.
