Barnstone or Amber is fossilized, hardened pine resin in which you sometimes see trapped air bubbles or fossils (insects). It is a very powerful cleansing stone that easily converts negative energy into positive energy. Barnstone is very soft and light and can damage or melt under the influence of acids, solvents and fire. Small pieces of amber are sometimes heated and compressed into a larger piece for use in jewellery. Because natural amber is expensive, it is made of plastic/resin. True amber can be difficult to distinguish from counterfeiting.
