Copal is a “younger sibling” to amber. It is tree resin that is less than 100,000 years old and in the process of transforming into amber. It has a soft, gentle energy that is protective yet resilient. Copal pens and cleanses the chakras. It is useful for the solar plexus chakra, good health during birthing, and overcoming depression.
In ancient Mexico and South America, copal was used as an offering to the gods of many civilizations.
Copal is often used to make incense.
Copal is a type of tree resin. Through polymerization, it becomes amber. It can be found worldwide but is notably prominent in Africa.

This resin is believed to aid the elimination organs, such as the liver and bladder. It can also be used to aid the throat via the throat chakra.
