COPAL RESIN

Copal Resin is essentially immature amber.  Having not undergone ambers hardening fossilisation process over long geological timespans copal is generally less durable and paler in colour than amber & can be dated anywhere between 33,000 and just 250 years old.  Its inclusions, however, can be just as fascinating as those found in amber
