Physically, Amber helps with the organs of elimination, including the liver, kidneys, bladder, and stomach. Also a stone of the Throat Chakra, Amber can help with laryngitis and goiter.

In very simple terms, in order to qualify a piece of resin as true Amber, a couple of things need to have happened. First, the molecules must have formed a polymer (a compound where two or more molecules have joined together) and secondly, the specimen must be at least 100,000 years old.

Copal or Copalite is the term given to organic resins that are not old enough (i.e. younger than 100,000 years) to have fossilized and hardened sufficiently to become Amber.

Amber is often imitated by plastics, colored glasses and some modern tree resins. True Ambers have a low specific gravity (amber can float on salt water) and inclusions can distinguish it from plastics and glasses.

In Africa, Copal is found in the coastal countries of East and West Africa, but especially on Madagascar. This so-called Madagascar Amber is solidified resin of the Amber Pine but is only 1,000 - 10,000 years old.

Most Amber from Columbia is less than 250 years old and in fact is not Amber at all, but the softer, younger version called Copal.

In summary, here are a few facts about Amber and Copal:

- Amber is defined by geologists as fossilized tree resin (not tree sap). Sap is the fluid that circulates through a plant's vascular system. Sap to a tree, is like blood flowing through the veins of you or me. Resin, on the other hand, is a semi-solid amorphous (no crystal structure) organic substance that is secreted in pockets and canals through epithelial cells of the plant. It's the really sticky stuff that after time will fossilize and harden.
- Hardened tree resin that is less than 100,000 years old is called Copal.
- Copal becomes Amber when it has finished fossilizing.
- Copal can "craze" or crack on the surface as the volatile oils (or turpenes) evaporate.
- Copal will dissolve in acetone, but Amber will not.
- Copal from Madagascar and Columbia are 250 to 10,000 years old
- Amber from the Baltics and the Dominican Republic are 25 to 40 million years old.

Please Note:  Although Citrine may not need clearing/cleansing as often as most crystals, we suggest clearing your Citrine as often as is needed, based on (1) the amount of use it gets (how hard is your crystal working for you?) and (2) the amount of energy that your crystal has been exposed to over a period of time. When clearing your crystals, always make sure that your intent is clearly stated, so the crystal knows that it is being given some time off and needs to recharge itself.  See this informative article on how to clear/clean any of your crystals: http://www.healingcrystals.com/How_to_Clean_Crystals_Articles_11358.html.

NOTE: There are two types of Citrine on the market. The first, most common variety is heat treated in order to obtain a bright golden yellow/orange color. Heat-treated or "enhanced" Citrine is a very popular and useful stone. The intensity of the color brings an additional intensity to the stone itself.

The second type of Citrine is natural Citrine. This Citrine has not been enhanced in any way; in fact, it is the same color as it was coming out of the mine.  Natural Citrine, which is a pale, golden color, is not as abundant as its "enhanced" counterpart.  Natural Citrine provides for powerful healing on many different levels and carries a cleaner, smoother vibration.

Amphibole (Phantom Quartz)

Amphibole Phantom Quartz is also known as Angel Phantom Quartz because the inner “phantom” appears to resemble the wispy wings of an angel. A Phantom is a crystal or mineral deposit within a crystal.  Phantoms are formed when the growth of a crystal has been interrupted and then begins to grow again.  While the color of Phantoms will vary from crystal to crystal, depending upon the type of mineral of which they are made, Amphibole Phantoms often contain inclusions of (yellow) Limonite, (red) Hematite, (white) Kaolinite, or (pink) Lithium. Often, the original mineral gets washed away, leaving only the Quartz to grow afterwards.

Angel Phantom Quartz is an excellent crystal to use with the Third Eye and Crown Chakras, as it enables you to gain a stronger connection to the Angelic realm as well as communication with your own Guardian Angel. This protective, high vibration stone increases our awareness of the spiritual realm, past-life recall and lucid dreaming.

A bringer of intense love, beauty and joy, Angel Phantom Quartz is invaluable in the home, especially when you surround it with other Angelic crystals such as Seraphinite, Angelite and Celestite. It will enable you to see your best inner strengths and increase your self-empowerment.

The addition of the Angel Phantom Quartz inclusions offer added benefits - the grounding of Hematite, the protection against psychic attack of Limonite, and the intuition-building of Kaolinite - combining to form a crystal that is a must in order to be a step closer to Universal love.

Keep an Angel Phantom Quartz crystal in your pocket, in your home, or in the workplace to know that your angels are always nearby.

Clear Quartz Phantoms are excellent for balancing and aligning all the Chakras to the Crown Chakra.  Those who are interested in spiritual growth and connection with the higher realms may find Clear Quartz Phantoms particularly helpful since the White Phantoms inside work with the Crown Chakra to integrate the experiences of the higher self into the other Chakras.

Angelite works to clear the Throat, Third Eye, and Crown chakras, and sends energy to the Soul Star chakra that lies 6 inches above the head.  The higher vibrations sent to these chakras allows for greater spiritual growth, enhanced intuition, and clearer communication.  Angelite’s ability to unblock the upper chakras clears the area to allow for the influx of higher vibrational information coming into the auric field, to be processed by the lower chakras.

Angelite (Anhydrite) can be used during meditation to enhance the meditative state, and to clarify issues in one's current situations as they arise.  By depositing inspiration from guides, guardians and/or angels into the chakras, Angelite allows them to be integrated into the whole, even after one is done working with the stone.

Apache Tears

Apache Tears are the translucent variety of Black Obsidian. They are made of volcanic glass. Apache Tears received their name because it is said that grieving Apache women, who lost their loved ones in a raid, cried for a month and their tears fell to the ground, becoming a form of Black Obsidian. This is why Apache Tears will often protect the wearer from grief and sorrow. The Tears will absorb the grief and release old hurts, and lifting the spirit.  They allow you to forgive others without being bitter.

Please Note:  Although Citrine may not need clearing/cleansing as often as most crystals, we suggest clearing your Citrine as often as is needed, based on (1) the amount of use it gets (how hard is your crystal working for you?) and (2) the amount of energy that your crystal has been exposed to over a period of time. When clearing your crystals, always make sure that your intent is clearly stated, so the crystal knows that it is being given some time off and needs to recharge itself.  See this informative article on how to clear/clean any of your crystals: http://www.healingcrystals.com/How_to_Clean_Crystals_Articles_11358.html.

NOTE: There are two types of Citrine on the market. The first, most common variety is heat treated in order to obtain a bright golden yellow/orange color.

The second type of Citrine is natural Citrine. This Citrine has not been enhanced in any way; in fact, it is the same color as it was coming out of the mine.  Natural Citrine, which is a pale, golden color, is not as abundant as its "enhanced" counterpart.  Natural Citrine provides for powerful healing on many different levels and carries a cleaner, smoother vibration.

Chatoyancy in French literally means “cat’s eye”.  One of the most striking attributes of Cymophanes is that, when turning the stone, the “eye” seems to be moving.  There are, however, other crystals with similar properties, but these are lower-grade and often called with names of their associated gems, such as “ruby cat’s eye”, or “quartz cat’s eye”. Almost all Cymophanes are cut into cabochons in order to preserve the moving cat’s eye effect.

Cymophanes, or Cat’s Eyes, have long been stones of protection, often being used as talismans to protect the wearer from the “evil eye”.  Cat’s Eyes are luck-bringers and yes, protect the user from mishaps and accidents (this author likes to compare it to a cat always landing on its feet! -S. Acone).
