The Aztec word “copal” (Nahuatl: copalli) refers to all tree resins -of any age- that have been employed as amber incense over the centuries. Consequently, from this etymological point of view, it turns most ambers, also the ‘famous’ Baltic or the almost equal old Dominican amber, into Copal, because they are used for incense even today.
But for lack of a better word, in modern times “Copal” is used to refer to semi-fossilized amber resins or sub-fossil amber. Basically, “copal” is “young amber” and “amber” is “old copal”. If you think this is interesting, read more here.
