* This amber is called copal because it is very young and does not have the same characteristics as the typical amber; Amber is a pine resin hardened by time, especially Pinus succinifera, with more than 30 million years old. Its composition is a mixture of several resins, succinic acid and a volatile oil C10H16O sometimes contains hydrogen sulfide H2S. While the copal is a large group of resins obtained from current trees and that also appears in some cases in a state of fossilization. A natural resin, it has almost the same properties as amber, so it also has insects, bubbles, leaves, etc.
