They are volatile substances, very popular in Romania, that can bring about intoxication via insufflation.

In the the Mahabharata, the Pandavas escape from a Wile E. Coyote-tier scheme to kill them by hosting a tea party in a flammable palace made of lac.

That is all I know about lac.

Well I am pretty sure that whatever the fuck OP has is not necessarily related, Lac comes from the Lac beetle of Southeast Asia which it is name after. That is where we get things from like the words/substances such as Lacquer and Shellac. It is a waxy resin produced by beetles which had formerly been used in primarily wood working but also other industrial purposes until often petroleum based synthetics largely replaced it unless you had a particular thing for that classic warm finish of real lac, or had been trying to repair some old furniture otherwise like has largely been phased out except for certain select sorts of wood enthusiasts. Fun fact it's also even still used in certain pharmaceutical and foodstuff applications for example in dye and the shiny coating on candies though obviously less popular now with more options. Also another fun fact this old school meme is clearly a valid thing because some wood is so pricey that getting the real deal might as well be trying to pass off counterfeit gemstones and the guy is using a jeweler's glass to inspect things like the grain and ring structure to ascertain its species, authenticity quality etc.

Really there isn't much more satisfying than thinking about and looking at good woodworking. I really don't care what anybody says lac is conceptually and in certain applications aesthetically as pleasing as the woodworking equivalent of a bolt action.
