Colombian Copal Chunk

This is quite the piece of copal.  Hard pressed on where to start.  The shape of the piece shows areas where it was attached to the side of the tree (unusual).  In addition there are numerous worker termites in this piece. It does appear that each of the 100's of worker termites show 1 or more large air bubbles coming off the body.  It is not unusual to find a worker termite with an air bubble, but here are 100's of them.  I have never seen anything like this before.

This is a large piece, almost 1.5 pounds (629 grams) and about 6 x 5 x 2.5 inches in size.

Just a cool piece with great inclusions.
