Amber brings in a lot of health benefits to the mind and the soul, and this is why amber as a stone is highly spoken off and used for holistic healing. If you have an amber necklace that has lost some of its beads or has a broken stone, you can get some more beads of the same colour and string a neckpiece for yourself. Use a sterling silver clasp to keep the beads hooked at either ends, with a stone pendant hanging in the middle.
