Copal Oro (aka. Gold Copal) is a hard semi-opaque golden resin obtained from the Bursera genus. It is often commonly referred to as Mexican/Mayan Gold Copal. Native to Mexico, this true copal resin evaporates completely when heated upon a hot charcoal. The smoke produced by Copal Oro is light, warm and cleansing with citrus notes and possibly a touch of spice. The aroma is very similar to Almaciga and Pontianak, who are sometimes sold under the guise of "Copal Oro" in the United States. While Almaciga tends to be richer with a creamy undertone, Copal Oro is "brighter". Both are equally enjoyable and highly recommended as spring cleaning and summertime incenses. Copal Oro is associated with the Fire element and the Sun is thought to be its celestial body.

As of 2016, we have decided to majorly simplify the taxonomic structures of the species collection. Due to the numerous systems available, and many species being disputed and in a state of flux, we feel that most of our audience will be better served with a easier to understand condensed listing.
