Formed by tree resin that has solidified and fossilized over millions of years, Amber has a potent connection to the energy of the Earth. Appreciated for its color and beauty since the Neolithic times, it has traditionally been used by spiritual and native healers to draw disease from the body, promote physical healing, and as a tool to cleanse the energy in an environment. Amber's nature is very bright and warm, and is thought to encourage a positive mental state and help fight depression.
This Pinecone is adorned with a Sterling Silver emblem of the Lotus. The white lotus blooms from the murky waters from which it emerges remaining spotless and pure.

In Buddhist mandalas, each of the eight petals corresponds to each element of the Noble Eightfold Path.
