Heating copal


#1

Hello, I was just reading the discussion on amber and was wondering
if copal can be heat treated. If copal is heat treated what is the
result? Is it harder?

If copal can’t be heat treated then is it safe to assume that
material with the sequin-like spangles in it is genuine amber?
(since heat treatment produces the spangels)?
