    This is an educational video of 25 year old Tibet Musk pod obtained from a Chinese medicine doctor.

    Ultra dried pod and the grains inside are like sand granules, truly a treasure.

    Enjoy!

    Yes, dearest Peter, I have already booked a lot from Faheem. Lots lots of grains with Pod. I don't think Faheem might have some grams left. The day I saw this Pod, I requested to have and have maximum of grains with the Pod. This Pod, rock hard, is beauty. The best thing about these Tibetan grains is 'fully dried' crystals of black diamonds. No weight loss at all.

    Though I have acquired some Tibetan grains from some other source as well. Yeaaaah! Now, a lot of Tibetan, a lot of Siberian, and lots lots of Kashmiri. Even Sandal with me seems less to me. I cannot dream of macerating Kashmiri and Tibetan in other than Mysore Sandal. Yes Siberian I can macerate in some other.

    Musk is all in all. No alternative. So, the moment I came to know, I never wasted a second and got that booked. Because I knew, "Once lost, forever lost" is true to THIS PARTICULAR POD AND GRAINS.

    I wish there was a such thing as a virtual "scratch-and-sniff"! My curiosity is definitely peaked upon hearing about a Tibet Musk.

    Thanks and thanks.
    Pod: 27.38 g
    Grains: 13.48 g

    Interesting figures. The best thing is the grains are fully dried.

    Already packed up for brother Rai Munir, will be heading to Pakistan this week.

    The inside of the pod does have a thick brown layer, maybe its extra grains I will try one last time to break that layer if unsuccessful then bhai Rai can have a dig at it.

    Well, I am anxiously awaiting the Tibetan Pod and a lot of grains. And it will be with me forever. I have already a Kashmiri Musk Pod.

    I have kept some Mysore Sandal granules in Kashmiri Musk Pod. And when heat them, no attar can be remembered at that time. Even sniffing the Pod with Mysore granules is a quite mesmerizing thing. Raw musk aroma and Mysore Sandal fragrance never let me get granules to heat them. But, heating is a sheer beauty.
