One of the few substances to be beneficial to almost every aspect of magic. Soothing the nerves as well as the spirit, and imparting the sense of protection, Amber is a powerful stone form manifestation. Placed on the altar or other magical work space it will bring strength to all magical spell-working and bring prosperity to every magical act. It is also a powerful protector against negative magic, black sorcery and bad luck. In ancient times Amber was burned as an incense to fumigate and clear the environment of negativity.
Specific uses by color:
Negative energy may make amber cloudy, and warmer than usual. Amber should be cleansed under warm water whenever you notice that it warms slightly when you hear or hold it, or if it becomes cloudy. Amber should not be left in the direct sunlight as it may dry it out or become brittle and easily fractured.
