Santalum Album, the most desirable and the holy grail of the Sandalwood family, presents a woody, creamy, rich and calming scent. As the trees mature into decades and over a century old, the heartwoods become denser and denser, turning from a brownish orange into a dark brown, and eventually a deep dark brown, evident of the high sandalwood resin content. Only utilizing the most aged and some of the densest heartwoods of Mysore Sandalwood, we present to you the "Black Meat" sandalwood bead in a vintage round barrel shape that is classy, and beautifully aromatic. These beads hit a strong value for money as they are close the density of being sinking, having all the aromatic and textural benefits of "sinking grade sandalwood" and yet at a price fraction.
These are 10 x 11mm in size and 13-14 grams in weight.
All our precious Kangiiten beads and wearables come in a premium handmade paulownia box that are sourced from a Japanese atelier that has been making such boxes for the imperial palace to store precious items and treasures for centuries.
