    Ill start a bidding at what I paid for it , 1200.00 a great opportunity for someone as it will only appreciate in value , and is already valued at 2200-2400

    The pendant is 55 mm long and 8 mm wide at the top and 20 mm wide at the base , its 5 to 8 mm thick , gorgeous ripples in the grain up and down and then again left to right , something you never see , very high chi artifact

    Out of pure curiosity, is this something that could be used for heating vs wearing or does wood like this get "swampy" or weird after it's been worn against someone's skin for a while as jewelry?

    It does get imparted with the energy of the wearer , I don't wear it much so its still pretty original . The longer its worn the less id use it for heating, or your heating the oils that have been absorbed too , but this is not something id use for heating anyway lots out there for that , this is worn for its therapeutic and chi energy . It increases the inner fire , its vibration is one to be attuned to that we may resonate with it , in this way its an invaluable instrument in a spiritual pursuit of enlightenment . Some agarwood pieces should never be burned I would not with this one but each to there own it will burn beautifully , what makes this piece special is in its shape there are waves that run in its grain from left to right and then again from top to bottom very unusual and powerful configuration , you dont see that much in woods so its quite special in its energies . Its very fragrant even at room temp , flowers, plumbs , honey , milk, tantalizing etherealness, deeply sexual and thought provoking , no real need to burn it as it releases its own magnificense without any burning , something to hand down to another generation . its smell always makes me wonder what a real agarwood oil would smell like if made from a wood like this , certainly nothing thats out there now , sadly . The oils we play with now are but shadows of what agarwood oil could be

    What type of kinam would this be under Chinese classification?

    Aquilaria Sinensis is known to produce the Chinese version of Kynam, whilst Aquilaria Crassna and potentially Malaccensis as well, was thought to produce the Vietnamese/Cambodian form of kynam.
    I belief this is a Crassna Vietnamese kynam .
    Its sold as well !!
