like diamonds, true amber takes millions of years to be created. amber is the ancient resin of trees once it has gone through a number of changes over a period of tens of millions of years. the age of amber can be between 35 and 140 million years old and can be found in many countries. it is known for its beauty and quality. its color, warmth, and electrical properties have earned it a reputation as a protective stone and calming stone. it can absorb negative energy and help the body to heal itself, and supports a sunny disposition, happiness, courage, good luck, manifestation, and helps to dispel depression. lava rock supports grounding, is very protective, and absorbs harmful energies.
tiger’s eye is a stone of protection that is grounding and enhances integrity, willpower, practicality and correct use of power. it is a stone of good luck, and brings prosperity, often in the form of money. it is well known as a very protective stone especially during travel, and can also help one see clearly without illusion. it brings a special boost to the solar plexus chakra and to one’s personal power.
in hindu tradition, the trident is shiva’s favorite weapon and represents the three elementary aspects of creation, protection, and destruction. it is worn for protection, but also as a symbol of shiva’s wisdom. shiva is often referred to as the god of the yogis. self-controlled and celibate, he is responsible for change both in the form of death and destruction, and in the positive sense of destroying the ego, the false identification with form. destruction opens a path for a new creation of the universe, and the destruction associated with shiva has great purifying power. as truth, goodness, and beauty, shiva represents the most essential goodness, protection, and the letting go of the world of form.
tiger ebony is considered to be one of the most powerful woods and is said to bring strength and protection. it balances both the feminine and masculine energies, brings good luck, and is considered to be especially useful in the seeking of spiritual knowledge.
