I myself have some bracelets of Oud and Sandal. And recently get the beads carved from the wood I myself provided to the respected carpenter.

I want guidance regarding shine on beads that we see in pictures. Is it due to their being saturated with intrinsic oil, or is it due to giving the bead oil massage to look good?

I am not talking about some specific rosary or beads, rather my concern is the products available on the market.

I have seen some Chinese sellers use baby oil unfortunately. If it has too much shine it’s definitely oil. For me I don’t care much about the shine or appearance, I like mine for aroma. Infact I like the raw appearance a bit. Attached pics of sinking / underwater (as they call it in Asia) Cambodian wood nugget bracelet

Hey Imran, is that pic taken in Andy's shop ? Looks very like some beads I looked at

I was a bit overwhelmed by the wood specimens on display, the sort of pieces I knew there was no point in asking the price on

Dumb question from a newbie. What would be the price range? Because it is wild? or sinking? or kyara? Some insight would be very useful for my knowledge. Thank you!

See, understand, act.
