Tumbled Copal - "Colombian Amber" — This is beautifully Tumbled Copal from Colombia and is often called "Colombian Amber". To be considered true Amber, resin from pine trees must completely fossilize over a process of 100,000+ years. Most "Colombian Amber" is less than 1,000 years old and has not yet fossilized. Despite the fact that Copal is not yet Amber, Copal will eventually become Amber as it ages and has a very similar vibration.
Copal/Amber unites the energizing force of the sun with the grounding, transmutive properties of earth. Amber has been used throughout time, including in the breast plates of the high priests, by Native Americans, and by Eastern Indians. A powerful yet gentle healer and cleanser, Copal/Amber draws out and transmutes negative energy of all kinds on all levels. Copal/Amber aids in physical self-healing, emotional healing of depression, and environmental clearing.
One of its most unique characteristics is that Copal/Amber never needs "clearing." Copal/Amber opens and cleanses all of the chakras. Highly protective, Copal/Amber also aids in the manifestation of ideas to reality. The life force trapped within Copal/Amber promotes fertility, and its protective and environmental clearing properties make it a good stone to use to prepare a healing or birthing room.
Use Copal with the Solar Plexus Chakra to increase confidence, mental clarity, and creative self expression. Copal is perfect for your pocket or for selected energy work.
