Amber is often called 'The Gold of the North' - formed over 50 million years ago. Amber is the solidified resin from ancient pine trees. Many of these pine forests died, became covered by sediments and submerged by the Baltic sea. The heat and pressure of the overlying sediment transformed the resin into Amber.
Paua shell is formed from the inner nacreous shell of molluscs. It is the Maori name for edible sea snails. Paua shell is thought to strengthen and soothe the body, particularly helping with fertility and nurturing.
This stone often contains golden flecks of pyrite (iron sulphide). These golden flecks on the deep blue matrix of the stone resemble a clear star studded sky and thus the stone was known as 'The Night Stone'. Its rich blue colour made it a favourite with royalty.

The best varieties are found in Siberia, Sri Lanka and Brazil. The colour is due to traces of iron. The Ancient Greek believed it could prevent intoxication, while medieval soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battle.
