Baltic Amber Rough Stone from Russia #SK1469
Amber is not just an ordinary gemstone; it's actually a bio-crystal. Bio means "life" and crystal refers to its formation in fossilized tree sap. Sometimes insects or leaves can be trapped inside of amber, and whatever you choose for your stone is known to bring good energy into life when wearing it during these cold winter months because this type brings warmth along with sunshine brightness which makes everything seem brighter from within.
A rough version of crystal is usually cut from a much larger piece of mined material that is too large or heavy to be used by a person. Rough chunks such as calcites are often acid washed to subtly smooth out rough edges that may cause cuts or injury and to prevent further flaking or breakage.
