Copal is a type of resin produced from plant sap, often from members of the genus Copaifera.
The term is particularly identified with the aromatic tree resins used by the cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as ceremonially burned incense and other purposes.
More generally, the term copal describes subfossil resinous substances in an intermediate stage of polymerization and hardening between more "gummy" resins and amber.
The word copal is derived from the Nahuatl language word copalli, meaning "incense".
In Africa, Copal is found in the coastal countries of East and West Africa, but especially on Madagascar.
This so-called Madagascar Amber is solidified resin of the Amber Pine but is only 1,000 - 10,000 years old.
Most Amber from Columbia is less than 250 years old and in fact is not Amber at all, but the softer, younger version called Copal.
Amber (or, technically, resinite) is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times.
Amber is used as an ingredient in perfumes, as a healing agent in folk medicine, and as jewelry.
There are five classes of amber, defined on the basis of their chemical constituents.
Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions.
In very simple terms, in order to qualify a piece of resin as true Amber, a couple of things need to have happened.
First, the molecules must have polymerized or formed a polymer (a compound where two or more molecules have joined together) and secondly, the specimen must be at least 100,000 years old.
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.
Amber is often imitated by plastics, colored glasses and some modern tree resins.
True Ambers have a low specific gravity (amber can float on salt water) and inclusions can distinguish it from plastics and glasses.

What are Ubique Botanical Perfumes?
Welcome to Pure Perfume
Ubique is Latin for "everywhere", and refers to Omnipresence, the property of being present everywhere.
u-bi-que [oo-bee-kwe; English] adverb, Latin, "Everywhere".
Ubique Botanical Perfumes contain concentrated botanicals. Plant, flower, wood oils, absolutes, tinctures, and concretes are used and may cause an allergic reaction if you have an allergy to these substances. It is always best to begin your fragrant Ubique journey with a sample before purchasing a larger size, but don't wait too long...these are limited creations and they sell out quickly!
• We do not accept returns on perfumes, personal care items, or sale items. Please purchase and try sample sizes before purchasing larger sizes. Thank you!

Mine Rough Stones and Crystals
Mine rough stones are those we procure directly from a mine instead of a mass dealer. These stones are fresh from the earth and have not been previously sold. We prefer mine rough stones as the vibrational qualities are HIGH.
ALL STONES AND CRYSTALS ARE MINED.
One should not expect perfection when purchasing from ANY dealer unless the stone has been cut and polished and is listed as "perfect".
If perfection is desired, please only purchase cut and polished "perfect" stones.
Mine rough stones may have dents, dings, etc. We photograph each stone and describe what we see. We do not sell that which is not of high vibrational quality and authentic.
