Why amber & jet?
Amber, fossilized tree resin, is the oldest "gem" used for adornment & magic. Jet, fossilized coal, is also pretty darn old. Here are two links to descriptions of these splendid substances and why they are traditionally worn by witches: Lady Bridget's take on it, and a nice short entry from 2 Witches.
My own amber necklace simply feels good to wear. It should touch your skin for maximum benefit. Since it's a resin, it is very light, and has nice smoothness; and yet, it doesn't feel at all like plastic. The description "solidified sunlight" gets it right!
