This is a very unique Chinese seal or chop carved in Copal Amber. A seal, in an East Asian context, is a general name for printing stamps and impressions thereof which are used in lieu of signatures in personal documents, office paperwork, contracts, art, or any item requiring acknowledgement or authorship. Chinese seals are typically used with red ink or cinnabar paste.The word 印 ("yìn" in Mandarin, "in" in specifically refers to the imprint created by the seal,. Many people in China possess a personal name seal. Seals are still used for official purposes in a number of contexts. When collecting parcels or registered post, the name seal serves as an identification, akin to a signature. In banks, traditionally the method of identification was also by a seal. Seals remain the customary form of identification on checks in Mainland China and Taiwan. Copal is the oldest known substitute for amber, often referred to as "immature amber".
