  • Quite often, unscrupulous sellers often claim "natural, original, sinking grade", buyers need to be aware all the time. Agarwood is infected part of Aquilaria tree, to obtain "sinking grade", it takes decades of infection; hence, most likely they are natural.

    What makes agarwood sunk? What factors determine the agarwood price?

    -the infected wood is known as resin

    Without the resin, Aquilaria trees will be like others, have little commercial value. Today, I would like to discuss the agarwood cut to make beads. Generally speaking, the heavier the beads, the higher the cost and the more chance of it to sink. On average, the weight of a bracelet of 12 to 16 beads is anywhere between 15 g to 40 g. However, sometimes hunter could give you a rare piece of wood decayed from a dead infected Aquilaria tree. Fortunately, we have a chance to secure it and would like to show you:

    This piece of wood is heavily infected that almost contain no white wood left. As it is so small to make round beads, John, the agarwood bead maker decided to make random broken pieces instead of the ordinary sphere beads as it offers high spiritual value

    After piecing together

    Test if sunk?

    Amazingly, it is the only 12g; such a tiny bracelet could sink despite its small weight. How could it be?

    The secret here is ageing, the age of infection, and the amount of resinous part of this wood, the resin formed was heavier than water; hence it sinks well. This piece of wood does not come every day. It is sporadic.

    You could see from raw material to finished product. There is no trick. If you are genuinely interested in this sinking quality bracelet, comment below and I will get back to you.

    For your information, it is worth $2500 USD.
