Carved Natural Amber Buddha Bust An early 20th century carved natural amber Buddha bust. The bust is rendered with classic elements in Buddhist portraiture including long earlobes, an urna third eye representing knowledge beyond the material realm, and a ushnisha cranial knob. The face, with eyes closed, appears to be in a calm, meditative state.
Yellow amber has been used traditionally by natural healers to improve memory, increase mental flexibility and create balanced decision-making. Amber has also been used, historically, as a talisman for courage and self-confidence, and was thought to bring good luck to warriors in battle. Lively, warm, and steady as she goes - Amber is truly a healing talisman and a glorious good luck charm too. Whether given to teething babies to help quell their cries or helping recovering people pleasers to set loving healthy boundaries, this gem is all about inviting calmness and healing into your life. Amber is the lifeblood of ancient trees and it brings all that energy with it into the here and now. It infuses us with a sense of nourishment, awakens our sacral chakra, and gives us all the tools and empowering vibrations we need to heal ourselves fully.
