Amber stone is a fossil resin from tertiary coniferous trees, about which not everything is known yet. Mineralogy defines amber as a body of organic origin, chemically heterogeneous, endowed with specific physicochemical properties.
Radiesthetists call it a stone of life, because it can provide our body with life-giving electrons and negative ions. Amber in its original form, under normal conditions of pressure and temperature is insoluble in water, slightly soluble only in some organic solvents such as ethyl alcohol, petroleum ether or benzene. Amber may be light yellow to brown in colour, opaque or translucent. It often contains submerged residues of plants or animals. It has a wide melting range from 250-400oC. Chemically it contains about 80% carbon, 10% hydrogen and oxygen. The composition of amber varies and depends to a large extent on the place of origin and age. It happens that the composition of raw material from the same deposit differs from one another, so it cannot be used for identification. The polymeric nature of amber is responsible for its limited solubility. The insoluble polymer network contains soluble components which can be extracted with suitable solvents.
The energising properties of amber are present in unpolished, unalloyed amber, i.e. in its natural form, whereas research has shown that they increase significantly after its micronisation (grinding). It is important that the grinding of amber pieces does not cause a significant increase in temperature that accompanies the friction process. An increase in temperature can cause the amber to melt and lose its valuable properties. During grinding, free electrons are released from the amber mass and the smell of turpentine (karen, p-cymen – volatile compounds found in resin) is noticeable. P-cenium and monoterpenes, e.g. karenes, are connected with the main mass of amber by complex bonds in which free electrons with energizing effect are present. Breaking the bonds in the amber releases free electrons and aromatic components. The released amber energy activates the ATP (adenosine triphosphate) contained in the cells to act towards their renewal and increase biological activity. ATP stores energy necessary for all metabolic processes of the cell. It is produced in the respiratory chain. In the process of ATP synthesis, energy is stored and released in the process of hydrolysis. Increasing the stored energy in ATP improves our vitality.
The magical and healing power of amber has been believed since the earliest times. The amber pendants from the Stone Age preserved to this day are interpreted as amulets used in hunting magic by the prehistoric inhabitants of the Baltic Sea Region. They are most often in the form of tiles or round shields with geometric ornaments, incisions in the form of zigzags and dots, sometimes with stylized images of people and animals, as well as in the form of zoomorphic and anthropomorphic figures. The mysterious and inexplicable properties of amber, especially the power of attraction, must have caused fear and admiration of the primitive man. No wonder that such an extraordinary stone was attributed with magical properties. It was probably believed that taking an amber pendant or an animal-shaped figurine with you for hunting would ensure successful hunting. In the Neolithic period, amber sacrifices were made in front of houses as a protection of their inhabitants against all misfortunes (such a Neolithic version of insurance).
Natural medicine specialists believe that each of us is surrounded by an electromagnetic field. As a result of stress or illness, there is an excess of positive charges. Meanwhile, our body functions properly when there is a balance between positive and negative charges. It is thanks to amber, which produces friendly negative charges, that we can recover it. Research has shown that this stone contains many valuable microelements: silicon, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, organic compounds combined with iodine, volatile substances, resin acids. However, raw amber, i.e. unpolished amber, has a beneficial effect on our health. Then it has antibacterial properties, facilitates healing, lowers blood pressure, increases bile secretion, calms, activates the body to fight diseases and to regenerate.
The properties of amber are also used in modern cosmetics. Cosmetics containing amber are designed to care for tired skin, requiring a large amount of energy needed for cellular renewal of the skin. Energy is a source of life, so we draw strength and vitality from it. The skin first reveals its lack, losing its elasticity and radiance, it regenerates more slowly, signs of aging appear. Cosmetics containing amber improve hydration and lubrication of the skin, cause

Although haematite occupies the final place among precious stones, it is attributed the greatest therapeutic properties and influence on man. This is done both physically and emotionally.
Hematite is actually an iron oxide, quite common on all continents. The most common form of hematite is rhombohedron, which is a spatial solid composed of 6 rhombuses.
Another name for hematite is yarrow. It owes it mainly to the intense red color during the powder process and the effect on the circulatory system. It is entirely black, steel or grey (various shades).
It was for these reasons that it became the main amulet of fighting soldiers. Not only did it allow them to defeat their enemies, but in case of injury it was used to stop dangerous bleeding.
Hematite healing properties
Heama is Greek blood, hence the name of the stone, which is attributed the greatest properties of the effect on the circulatory system. First of all, it is used to stop bleeding, regulate the menstrual cycle. Bloodworm is used for all diseases related to blood circulation. It helps to regulate blood pressure, prevents the formation of varicose veins, unblocks blood vessels. It facilitates iron absorption, which is particularly important for people prone to anaemia and muscle spasms.
Supporters of unconventional medicine believe that it has a positive effect on kidney function and treats bladder diseases. Bloodworm affects not only the body, but also the soul. Already in ancient times it was considered a stone of happiness, helped to maintain a joyful mood, brought love, strength and victory. Nowadays it is treated as an amulet bringing spiritual balance, allowing to overcome stress, gives strength to overcome difficulties – smaller and larger ones. People who wear hematite jewellery are distinguished by their self-confidence. They are characterized by a sense of humor, optimism, easy to win recognition in the community and the sympathy of a wide range of friends. It is recommended especially for people with complexes or a tendency to depression.
The positive effect of hematite is quite long, after some time it should be cleaned and recharged with positive energy. Unlike other gemstones, haematite reacts badly to water, the best energy effects are achieved by storing it in the company of a mountain crystal.
The prevalence of hematite makes jewellery with it available for every pocket. The color of yarrow (from gray to black) makes it almost universal stone. It can be used to create necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches or rings.
It looks much better in the company of silver than gold, it also looks elegant on its own (necklaces, bracelets). When it comes to haematite, jewellery is completely universal – it fits most of the costumes.

Pyrite is a very popular sulfide stone. In terms of chemical structure it is iron sulphide. Due to its golden-metal colour and confusion with real gold, it used to be called “fool’s gold” or “cat’s gold”. It is also sometimes confused with Markasite, whose chemical composition is the same, but the structure is completely different. Pyrite crystallises in a regular system to form cubes, octahedrons and pentagonal duodenums, and Markasite crystallises in a diamond system, is less durable and easier than Pyrite undergoes the action of oxygen and moisture.
The name Pyrite comes from the Greek word “pyr” meaning “fire” or “pyrites” meaning sparkling. This is because it is a mineral that sparkles when struck by steel.
Pyrite is a “stone of independence”, independence and responsibility. Under the influence of its energy, we easily take matters into our own hands without waiting for help, which does not have to come from other people. It balances two elements in us – female and male (Yin and Yang according to Taoism – Chinese philosophical system), i.e. male, extrovert energy directed at external activity, with female introvert energy directed at internal reflection. When one of these aspects of human nature is in abundance, the energy of Pirate equalizes them. The energy of Pyrite arouses appetite for the realization of plans and gives the energy necessary to implement them in life. We easily analyze the level of their difficulty – which makes it easier to control all our investments and efforts on an ongoing basis. We feel that our actions are as creative as they are practical. Intuition becomes the driving force behind effective actions in hard areas of our lives – finances, negotiations, management or leading complex projects. The balance between the intangible and the tangible increases the strength of our will, builds positive ambition, persistence in achieving the goal and motivation to engage even more in tasks that we previously thought were unrealistic to carry out.
Pyrite stimulates creativity in people working in artistic fields – sculpture, architecture, painting, graphics, but also science. It’s perfect for students because it increases concentration, improves memory, facilitates analysis and logical thinking.
Pyrite according to unconventional medicine:
– It strengthens the immune system.
– It helps with problems with getting pregnant as well as with increasing potency.
– Cleanses the body, especially the kidneys and liver.
– Increases the overall performance of the body and its vitality.
– It soothes anxiety, anxiety, anxiety, aggression, helplessness, pessimism.
– It has a beneficial effect on the digestive system and the vegetative nervous system.
– It helps to eliminate eye diseases, cramps and nervous tics, dizziness and sleep disorders.
– It lowers high cholesterol levels in the blood, relieves the symptoms of diabetes, hepatitis and gall bladder inflammation.
Pyrite undergoes rapid surface ventilation – under the influence of oxygen and moisture oxidizes to oxides, iron hydroxides or sulfates (corrosion phenomenon). Sometimes even a small touch of a finger on the stone can result in rust on its surface, because our hands are naturally moist and the skin has an acidic reaction. It may also happen that during prolonged contact with the body, under the influence of sweat and oxygen Pyrite will release sulfuric acid and iron ions Fe+2, which may cause skin irritation or allergic reactions. Therefore, store it in a dry and shady place and avoid contact with damp skin. Note: Pyrite is very sensitive to temperature changes.
Amethyst was already known in the ancient times
It is a variety of lactic quartz, usually violet in colour, but can also be in different shades of purple or heather. It owes its colour to radioactive radiation (harmless to humans) and iron content. It most often occurs in the shape of a bar or even more often in the shape of crystalline brushes. Pure crystals above 10 cm are rare.
Since ancient times, amethyst has a very different meaning. The Greeks drank wine made of charm made of amethyst, believing that this will protect them from getting drunk. The very name of the stone in Greek means “not drunk”.
According to Roman mythology, Bachus, the patron of good spirits, who does not avoid drinking, fell in love with the beautiful nymph Amethis. However, this one, discouraged by his drunkenness, asked Diana for help and was turned into a beautiful stone. Bacchus in love gave him the power to prevent him from getting drunk. To this day, amethyst helps to combat alcohol addiction.
The Hebrews, on the other hand, were convinced that it brought happy dreams. Already in the Middle Ages, it was considered a symbol of bishop’s dignity, so it decorated chalices and liturgical robes of the highest ecclesiastical dignitaries. The golden bishop’s signets also contained amethyst stone. It was also found in the famous Ring of the Fisherman John Paul II.
Amethyst, however, is used mainly in jewelry as a decoration for jewelry, mainly rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. It was placed in the jewellery of the English queen and Russian tsarina. As far as amethyst is concerned, the price depends on the country of origin of the stone, its weight and the degree of polishing and colouring. Small raw amethysts can be bought for just a few zlotys, but for larger, polished you have to pay about 1000 zlotys.
Amethyst is attributed various properties, is primarily considered a stone of happiness and spiritual balance. It ensures peace and harmony. It is especially recommended for people susceptible to stress, it allows to soothe and overcome it.
Amethyst strengthens concentration, so it is advisable to place it on the desk of a student or a person working mentally. Apparently, students in the company of Amethyst are more likely to learn and achieve better results. Amethyst also has an effect on insomnia, so people who have trouble sleeping should put it under their pillows and at the same time ensure a peaceful night’s sleep without nightmares.
However, it is not possible to keep it in the bedroom too long, because it deprives energy, which can adversely affect the sexual life of partners.
Amethyst is also attributed with specific healing properties. It helps to fight migraine pains, has a positive effect on the digestive and circulatory systems (cleanses the vessels and prevents the formation of atherosclerosis). Amethyst water soothes itching after bites, soothes various inflammations of the skin.
Some people think that amethyst will protect the house and its inhabitants from thieves.

For the Inuit, the Labradorite is a magical stone whose symbol is its irritation, i.e. changing rainbow colours on its surface, depending on the angle of light incidence. They explain this as the existence of features hidden under the shell, invisible at first glance, but noticeable only in the case of great attention, when the mind is purified.
