Amber is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated by humanity for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Copal is a name given to tree resin that is particularly identified with the aromatic resins used by the cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as ceremonially burned incense and other purposes. More generally, the term copal describes resinous substances in an intermediate stage of polymerization (combining molecules) and hardening between “gummier” resins and harder amber. The word copal is derived from the Nahuatl language word copalli, meaning “incense”. Our Amber is native of regions in Columbia and Madagascar.
