This is a beautiful, high quality, Reconstituted Amber Crystal Skull! I don't have many left in this size. THIS IS NOT FOSSILIZED AMBER. "Reconstituted" means that this skull is made from genuine Amber chips or small pieces which have been fused together using heat and high pressure. It is also sometimes called "Reconstructed Amber". The reason for this process is that it is difficult to find larger individual pieces of Amber, and when you do find them they are incredibly expensive. This Reconstituted Amber is much less expensive, but carries the same metaphysical properties as "normal" Amber because it contains pieces of Amber. Any additional "filler" used in this material is a natural substance called copal resin, which is also gold colored and comes from trees. Copal resin is sometimes called 'young amber.' It is found a couple of meters underground, beneath old growth copal trees, and what my carver uses is from Africa or Madagascar. Personally, I find it beautiful and enjoy the energy.
It has a gorgeous, rich, coloring with interesting sparkly looking inclusions visible throughout in the highly collectible "raindrop pattern"! This skull is just beautiful. It's so warm and bright, with a silky smooth feel that just begs you to hold it!! It is the perfect size for holding in the palm of your hand - it would be a great skull to mediate with!
It has a few small organic areas marked by thin, linear indents/white lines from edges of the "rain drops", pinprick sized indents from inclusions that were close to the surface as the skull was polished, or light scuffs. You can feel some of them subtly as you run your fingers over them. ALL inclusions present are 100% natural parts of the material. They do not affect on the beauty or energy of the skull. The photos don't do it justice. It is much nicer 'in person!' Check out my feedback and bid with confidence!
It measures 2 7/8" inches long X 1 3/4" inches wide X 2 3/16" inches tall and weighs approximately 4.2oz, light for the size because of the material! Code-021623-20733
Reconstituted Amber - It is also sometimes known as "Restructured Amber" or "Reconstructed Amber.” NOTE: Reconstituted Amber is NOT fossilized Amber. This can be a somewhat controversial material. Some people are very drawn to this material, and others are not. Either way - that's OK. Personally, I find the material beautiful and enjoy the energy.
Amber is excellent for inner child work and past life work. Amber is a soothing stone that is both calming, yet energizing. It is said to bring clarity of thought and wisdom. It is often used to draw out negative energy to cleanse an environment. It is used to ease physical pain in the same manner. It has long been considered as a good luck charm for marriage.
It is also good for psychic shielding and protection.
In Crystal Healing, amber is a powerful tool. Amber is used to aid bone problems, heart problems, circulation, ears, hearing problems, endocrine imbalances, fibromyalgia, intestinal/digestive disorders, kidney, bladder, lungs, and general healing purposes.
Amber is associated with the solar plexus Chakra, and sometimes the Sacral Chakra.
Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
