Copal is found in many places and is still being produced today.  Copals can be relatively young, sometimes only a few hundred years old but some can be millions of years old and be well along their way to becoming amber.  Copal is merely a term for young, unripened amber. Finding the point where copal becomes amber is not simple.  There are many different schools of though to define these materials.  A long-established standard is that amber is at least ten million years old and any resins less than this are considered to be copal.
