There are many nice and a whole lot more cheezy burners fro charcoal incense from import stores, and many people use Native American traditional Abalone shells. My solution is: I shop the many resale stores of Austin TX, and buy nice oversized cocktail or martini glasses, and then you can choose the ornamental gravel that goes into the glass to prevent the burning charcoal from cracking the glass. I've got black pebbles, mixed natural colored pebbles and silver-painted stone chips. Let me know if you have a preference. I will try to keep the photos up-to-date, but you might get something similar to the photo, because I'm buying them individually at resale shops. I really like this apparatus more than the import burners, because the long stem of the glass allows you to carry the incense about the house.
" Copal Blanco is golden-white in color and is very bright and clean smelling. This is a standard in Mexico, South and Central America for purification.

Copal resin comes from a number of trees in the genus Copaifera, and like other resins derived from tree sap the distinctive smells come from the sugars and other components present in the sap of the tree. Copal is a genus of the western hemisphere, and in many ways it is the western equvalent of Frankincense, and is used ritually in very similar ways, for purification, blessing, and to create a spiritual environment that calls out our Higher Powers. Enjoy Copal Blanco by itself in its purest form, or blend it with other herbs and resins for your own formulas. It goes especially well with citrus and piney smells.

The below correspondences are vis Cunningham, Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs in plain text, C.L. Zalewski, Herbs in Magic and Alchemy in brackets, or my own interpretations in parenthesis. Cunningham and Zalewski do not distinguish between the different kinds of Copal, but baed on the correspondences they give, I believe that Cunningham is referring to White Copal, and Zalewski is referring to Black or unrefined Copal.
