In the early 80s, the first time I saw big fat phenolics, I was told they were "Copal". I had been to Jamey's talk on amber (the first time I saw Jamey) and was just beginning to learn about amber and it's substitutes.

The market term "Copal Amber" is pretty contradictory. Is it copal, or is it amber? By definition, it can't be both at the same time. I recall this only during the eBay years.
