Resin coated Indo Agarwood Mala Prayer beads, Meditation Necklace 108 Wild Agarwood Mala Beads
If you love to wear a bracelet or a mala on your wrist, but you sweat a bit,
then read on because I have only 2 of these unique items made for you.
Please allow me to tell you something you have already known. In your sweat, there is salt and salt will damage your jewellery. Your metal necklace or bracelet will likely tarnish after a period of time.
We usually don't do this: add a layer of coated resin on top of the agarwood beads
Because it is called "adulterant", under normal circumstances, agarwood lovers only like pure products, yes, 100% genuine agarwood beads.
However, I know may oud lovers, 108 mala lovers but they tend to sweat more than average.
And due to this reason, we decided to do something special.
We want to create a 108-mala-agarwood that is durable, glossy and can withstand sweat. This 108-mala will be made from infected Aquilaria tree (agarwood) only.
So we see a local trader who has a dark resin substance made from "liquidating" the agarwood resin. They called it "Getah". Unfortunately, he did not want to reveal the secret of making this "Getah". He only told me that it was from the Aquilaria tree.
The Middle East people, usually use this "Getah" to burn with wood chips as it enhances the wood chips smell. Alone, it smells like tree medicine (dried herbs).
He told me if he applied this coating on this two 108-mala, it would
make the mala heavier (39g compared to normal weigh of 20g)
glossier, darker (Getah in nature, are dark brown)
durable, less likely to crack
It works like a transparent coated pain.
So I agree, but only with two would be coated by this extraordinary effect
