Did You Know


Did you know,  that legend has it amber contains the souls of tigers?
Amber is a fossilized resin that's usually a translucent yellow or brown, but can also be red, green or blue and is warm to the touch.

I had NO idea. You are a fountain of trivial, err, I mean useful, information, dear Sandra.

Elephant's Child said...

I didn't know that. And of course a tiger's soul would HAVE to be stored somewhere beautiful.

Andrew said...

Just for once, I did know that.

RO said...

I did't know that, but it sure makes sense, as both are so beautiful. Hugs, RO

Does that mean amber is the eye of the tiger?

Birgit said...

I like the legend. I only knew amber to be that yellow colour which I hate. Why? It reminds me of the time I cleaned the walls when I was young. My parents were smokers and when I sprayed fantastik on the walls the dips and runs would have that colour...yuck.

I haven't seen the other colors but, amber crystals are associated with healing and the throat.

Sandra Cox said...

Oh yes:)

In the 1960s the advertising slogan for Esso petrol was: 'Put a tiger in your tank'.

Does that mean my soul not only is full of tigers, but amber and petrol, too? :)
