Size: see photos measurements in cm. Copal is hardened tree resin, & a younger variation of Amber.
We recommend using a magnifying aid to view the inclusions. Copal can tend to be cloudier than Amber.
Copal & Amber Inclusions are unfortunate animals, insects, plants etc. Which became entombed in tree resin (not tree sap) millions of years ago. With the inclusion engulfed, the resin slowly hardened through a natural polymerization of the original organic compounds. This hardened material is known as Copal, which preserves the inclusion perfectly. Through time the Copal becomes buried and, over a several million year process, slowly turns into what we know as Amber.
Incredibly this process has allowed us to marvel at ancient specimens frozen in time, as if captured only yesterday. We would always suggest using a magnifying aid to view your specimen to truly appreciate the inclusions stunning frozen detail. The inclusions can include such specimens as flies, gnats, midges, beetles, wasps, ants, spiders, seeds, plants & more.
