★ Metaphysical Properties and Mystic Lore: This variety of dark colored amber is most closely associated with the hara chakra. Not only can it absorb and dispel negative energy, but it serves the entire Hara Line by calming and clearing the hara chakra. Not only is it associated with safety and security, but it s a powerfully protective stone. It protects the user from psychic attacks and psychic vampires, and also removes hooks and cords from the Hara and Kundalini line chakras in addition to healing the damage previous hooks and cords may have caused.

Black Amber protects against psychic vampires and psychic attacks. Possesses grounding energy.
Black amber accounts for about fifteen percent of the amber found. However, it is not actually pure fossilized tree resin. It has been mixed with the remains of the tree from which it came or other plant matter. That does not make it any less appetizing. When the specimen is made up entirely of carbonized coal, so there is little difference between jet and black amber. Consequently jet is sometimes called black amber and visa versa. When black amber is held up to the light, it will usually be another color. The back-light shines through the amber and a different color will show. This color is usually a dark red, blue, or brown. It is criticized that the black amber is not truly black because of this property and some people deny that black amber even exists. In my opinion, it is only more beautiful because of it’s ability to show a different color in the light. (Source: skywalker.cochise.edu)
Amber serves as a bridge to connect the energies of Heaven and Earth – of the spiritual and the physical realms. Amber can be used to ground spiritual energies into your physical body and fill it with light. Amber can also help you feel more connected to the physical plane. Amber is helpful in dissolving energy blockages and relieving depression. Although for purposes of chakra balancing, it is placed on the navel area, it can be placed at any point where you feel that you need to be revitalized. Amber assists you in coming from your own inner knowing, helping your channels to be clear and open in being an instrument of the Divine. Amber spiritualizes your intellect and activates your creative nature. It stabilizes your Kundalini awakening, bringing in healing, soothing and harmonizing energy. It assists you in calming fears and exerts a positive influence on your endocrine and circulatory systems, thyroid, heart and spleen.
Copal is a sister to Amber, or ancient tree sap, and can also be classed as a fossil as it can contain many preserved insects and other animals and plants that are tens of thousands of years old. The odd inclusions that are often seen in Copal and Amber usually add to their unique look and in many cases greatly increase their value. Amber is the oldest at millions of years of age, while Copal is somewhat younger (it is merely thousands of years old. Merely! Ha!). Copal has the same properties as Amber. Once thought to be sunshine transmuted into physical form, Copal brings wealth and joy to the bearer. The Mayans revered it as sacred, and many ancient cultures used it as incense in sacred ceremony.
