Queen Bee

Full frontal shot of the Queen Bee necklace. Actually hardened translucent resin produced by coniferous trees of the Tertiary period, and typically yellowish to red in color, Amber is a Solar “stone” closely associated with the power of the Sun and masculine energies. For many centuries Amber has been considered one the most potent of magical gems, and is favored by witches, both Traditional and Wiccan.

Like Amber, Jet is not actually a stone, but a fossilized organic substance very similar to coal, and in fact Jet and coal are created from the same materials in the same way. Jet is common in prehistoric burials and is associated with powerful women, Queens and Priestesses. In modern times it typically represents the power of the Goddess and the mystery of the night in which the silver Moon is Queen.

Together, Amber and Jet are traditional ornaments of rank in British Traditional Witchcraft. In Gardnerian Craft, the High Priestess is permitted to wear amber and jet jewels upon obtaining Third Degree. More can be found regarding this and other lore at
