This gorgeous amber pendant is made of Mexican amber and was hand-formed by Mayan artisans of Chiapas. It is strung on a dromedary leather cord from the Tuareg people of North Africa. The necklace is about 19" long but I can put it on a different length cord if you wish. the pendant measures 3.25 inches.
Mexican amber is among the rarest and highest qualities of amber in the world. The amber is of a long extinct species of tree and is probably about 25 million years old.
Here is some information about the metaphysics of Amber if you are interested:
A powerful yet gentle healer and cleanser, Amber draws out and transmutes negative energy of all kinds on all levels. Amber aids in physical self-healing, emotional healing of depression, and environmental clearing. Amber opens and cleanses all of the Chakras.
Highly protective, Amber also aids in the manifestation of ideas to reality. The life force trapped within Amber promotes fertility, and its protective and environmental clearing properties make it a good stone to use to prepare a healing or birthing room. Use Amber with the Solar Plexus Chakra to increase confidence, mental clarity, and creative self-expression.
Physically, Amber helps with the organs of elimination, including the liver, kidneys, bladder, and stomach. Also a stone of the Throat Chakra, Amber can help with laryngitis and goiter.
