In the wilderness of Kedah in 1995, a hunter buried a tree several feet underground. The placement was near a forested river, and the ground is very moist in this location.
Recently, the tree was rediscovered. When extracted, there remained virtually no white wood left around the infections. The aroma is simply resplendent, and true to ancient Kedah terroir. Cedary, piney, gooey and amberous, with a blast of frankincense. A clear, purple aroma.
Note that only one other bracelet was made from this tree, which sold to the Japanese market. Many beads are not perfectly circular and may contain a small divit on one side.
