Agarwood or Oudh is a dark resinous heartwood that forms in Aquilaria trees; when they become infected with a type of mold. Prior to infection, the heartwood is relatively light and pale coloured; however as the infection progresses, the tree produces a dark aromatic resin in response to the attack, which results in a very dense, dark, resin embedded heartwood. The resin embedded wood is commonly called aloeswood, agarwood, or oud. And is valued in many cultures for its distinctive fragrance, and thus is used for incense and perfumes.
The odour of agarwood is complex and pleasing, with few or no similar natural analogues. As a result, agarwood and its essential oil gained great cultural and religious significance in ancient civilizations around the world, being mentioned throughout one of the world’s oldest oral texts – the Sanskrit Vedas from Vietnamese.

Agarwood beads are amongst the hardest to verify amongst all agarwood related products. The ultimate way to verify a bead; is just to split it into half; check the grain, resination; and to heat it on a heater at various temperatures. But as this process damages the bead; and renders it irreversibly chipped with spoilt aesthetics etc.
Without this most powerful “tool” in verification; it allows for all sorts of products to sneak into the market; even fooling experts sometimes. Beads are also very profitable; pick up any agarwood beads, weigh them. You might see weights like 4-5 grams for small bracelets; 15 grams for small beaded necklaces; 25-30 grams for sinking large bead bracelets etc. The price ratios commanded are often in the range of hundreds of dollars per gram. This is agarwood, not kyara; and yet the price in this product format is that high.
Beads are also the easiest to fake
Many ways to “fake” and make low quality agarwood beads seem high valued/of high quality. If you do not know how to fake something and make it look real. you will never have the experience to be able to verify the authenticity of things. I smile sometimes are some famous sites/people talking about beads; and yet showing the picture of something that I could tell easily to be unreal and processed by a certain method etc..
The aim of this post is just to show you how dangerous and challenging beads are. Do not ever consider EATING or making drinks out of beads. its very much more riskier than agarwood chips; and you do not know what sort of chemicals you are consuming, possibly poisoning yourself.
