Anbaric Current – a form of electric current, used in Lyra’s world. From Pullman: “I looked up the word electric, and I found that it came from the Greek word for amber. The Greeks knew that if they rubbed a piece of amber, they could create static electricity. Then I looked up the word amber, and found it came from the Arabic word anbar.”
