Copal can be burnt like a resin for its cleansing smoke or used for energy work or placed in an altar for connection to earth and self. Copal is a great tool to soothe uncomfortable emotions and bring peace to the self. Connect on a deeper level with earth and the natural energetic cycles of the planet.
Copal is formed by the fossilisation of tree resin. Copal is a younger form of amber and as such is softer and contains many more insects. Be aware of plastic imitations or copal imitating amber.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
