    This thread is for those who wish to share photos of their beads.

    I’ll start off with what I’m wearing today.

    Swamp Agarwood with nice chatoyance, very heavy and sinking.

    I have seen many different patterns and colors of the “so-called” Buaya Agarwood.

    I am beginning to suspect that there is more than just one species involved.

    Some of them are a bit fragrant, nice smell too, which further tells me, that there must be different species.

    381F91A9-8263-4FE6-8CB0-EDD8D1E75368.jpeg This one has the best smell, similar to Malaysian agarwood chips, but more of the woody note, than the spicy or sweet notes.
    In general, the Buaya Agarwood is not a very fragrant wood, so most of my beads have very little to no smell.
