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 opens 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.
