Amber was believed to be a powerful talisman by the Vikings. Stories of the magical powers of this fossilised tree resin, washed up on the shores of the Baltic, go back to pre-historic times. The tiny flaws contained within amber are known as inclusions and are evidence of organic matter - some rare specimens containing insects are extremely valuable as most of the world's amber is in the range of 30-90 million years old.
Amber is believed to encourage creativity and encourage a sunny nature, as well as protecting the wearer from negativity.
Tigers Eye is a member of the quartz family and has a fibrous composition which creates a silken sheen giving rise to its name. In ancient times tiger’s eye was used to make amulets that protected the wearer against spells.
Tigers Eye is believed to help maintain a balanced view on life and to combat stress by enabling the wearer to gain courage and confidence.
