healthy stone

June 16, 2011


As I unclasped Oma’s necklace for her, I commented on how nice the stones were. She told me it was her “health” stone, brought with her from Germany. Bernstein she told me, not knowing what it would be called in English. Looking it up, I realized it was what I know as amber. I have always liked the stone, but didn’t know it had purported health benefits till now. At any rate, when I asked her if I could take a photo of it, now that I knew the word, she brought out another one. Both are in the family, from Germany, but one she had when she was younger and one was brought to this country later on, a gift from her uncle. So there you have it, today’s gleaning :-)
