“Divine sun rays fall upon the earth’s surface becoming fine Amber”
AMBER: FROM THE LEGEND TO PRESENT DAY
As the myth recalls, Phaeton, a young Greek God of the Olympus, son of Zeus the Sun God and Clymene, managed to convince his father to let him guide his solar chariot for one day.
The unexperienced Phaeton was not able to hold his father’s horses, and lost the chariot’s hold, and subsequently, its course. The chariot started to burn forests, withering rivers and lakes till they dried.
To avoid the earth’s destruction, Zeus threw lightning against his own chariot and destroyed it, killing Phaeton.
Phaeton’s sisters, the Heliades rushed to the Eridanus’s banks where the chariot had fallen and cried with agony. Zeus, filled with pity turned them into poplars so they could remain in wake of their beloved brother’s tomb, as their tears became the source of purest amber.
"Where sorrowing they weep into the stream forever. And each tear as it falls shines in the water, a glistening drop of amber.”
Numerous and different legends narrate the birth of this precious resin that holds in its qualities warmth, color, and the energy of the sun.
In the course of millenniums Amber has been used for a variety of purposes. From the creation of jewelry to therapeutic, cosmetic, and alchemic uses; this resin holds unquantified healing properties embraced by the product’s formulation.
