Blue amber is the rarest of all the colors of amber. However, blue amber is fairly new to the gem industry. It must be caught in the right light, or it will look like every other piece of yellow-brown amber.
A fascinating property of blue amber is the color that it will change when a fluorescent light is shown on it. It will be a dazzling bright blue because the fluorescents inside it will react to the light. However, the same rock will look yellow or brownish when a white light source, such as the natural sunlight, shines from behind it.
Amber is not a mineral but an organic product. It is fossilized resin of ancient trees living 25 to 50 million years ago, but some pieces have been found which can be as old as 130 million years. Because of the small insects who could have been trapped inside, amber has helped paleontologists to reconstruct life on earth in its primal phases, and more than 1,000 extinct species of insects have been identified this way.
Amber is said to be a powerful healer and cleanser of the body, mind and spirit. It also cleanses the environment. Amber draws disease from the body, healing and renewing the nervous system and balancing the right and left parts of the brain. It absorbs pain and negative energy, helping to alleviate stress. Amber clears depression, stimulates the intellect and promotes self-confidence and creative self-expression. It encourages decision-making, spontaneity and brings wisdom, balance and patience.
