In early times, the Lake was a tremendous Forest. Now, when the Lake’s floor is stirred by a roaring storm, fossilized resin from those ancient trees floats to the surface. This is your gift from one of those trees. It has been awaiting your arrival for millions of years. It may show you a glimpse of an underwater glade; a bank of reeds; or sun-dappled waves. Observe it to receive your message from that early tree.
The local Turtles use amber in their healing practices.
Your natural polished Baltic amber piece may range between .75-1.5 inches in size. Each piece is unique, with its own variations and inclusions. Amber is not a mineral. It feels light and warm compared to mineral crystals. Because amber includes succinic acid, it is included in many healing traditions.
Amber from the Ancient Forest was featured in the Frozen Lake Box (February 2022).

I love amber! I've always thought it was so cool how you never know what you might see encased inside the beautiful golden "stone". The piece is a nice size, large enought to display or use for practial purposes but not so large as to be cumbersome.
I never heard of this before until I got it in my box! It's really smooth and unique and I get lost seeing all the little inclusion inside it!
