Copal or Copalite is the term given to organic resins that are not old enough (ie YOUNGER than 100,000 years) to have fossilized and hardened sufficiently to become Amber. Copal is a type of resin produced from plant sap, often from members of the genus Copaifera. If you look closely at your piece of Copal, you will see fossilized insects!
Copal contains properties similar to that of Amber: A powerful yet gentle healer and cleanser, it draws out and transmutes negative energy of all kinds on all levels. It aids in physical self-healing, emotional healing of depre$$ion, and environmental clearing. One of its most unique characteristics is Copal never needs clearing. Copal opens and cleanses all of the Chakras.
Highly protective, Copal also aids in the manifestation of ideas to reality. The life force trapped within Copal promotes fertility, and its protective and environmental clearing properties make it a good stone to use to prepare a healing or birthing room. Use Amber or Copal with the Solar Plexus Chakra to increase confidence, mental clarity, and creative self-expression.
