Scope note
A medium-hard variety of copal resin obtained from the kauri pine, Agathis australis, native to New Zealand. It is a pale yellow to reddish brown resin with a piney odor. Kauri can be collected as a resin or found in fossilized deposits; today it is scarce. It was widely used in the early 20th century for floor and furniture varnishes, in adhesives, enamels, and linoleum.
