A substance which exudes from many trees, especially from firs and pines, usually of a yellowish or amber colour, and more or less transparent; the commonest resin, forming the remains of the still after distilling turpentine, is usually called rosin; volatile oil rendered concrete by the oxygen of the atmosphere.
By Stormonth, James, Phelp, P. H.
A vegetable product, commonly dry and concrete, more or less brittle, inodorous or slightly odorous, insipid, or of an acrid warm taste; of a smooth, glassy fracture, heavier than water, inflammable, insoluble in water, soluble in alcohol, ether, and yolk of egg, and negatively electrificable by friction. Many resins are used in medicine; the greater part is purgative and irritating. Some act like acrid poisons.
