Despite what most people think, Amber isn’t an actual gemstone and although some consider it to be a healing crystal, it’s not a stone either. Amber is actually fossilized resin. However, because it has many similar characteristics to gemstones, it’s typically referenced as such.
The resin that comprises amber came from now-extinct pine trees that existed millions of years ago. While the substance remained underground for centuries, the fossilization process turned it into amber, which is typically used these days to make jewelry. However, there are many other uses for amber that extends passed wearing it as a necklace or bracelet.
