    The seller has one more similar to this, the pictures in the listing are of the two available, well, make that one available now ;)

    The smell is very faint and more like wood, it is not the same species of Agarwoods that we have come to love for kodo, and oud oil:cool:

    For Kodo, I got these tiny-cut resinated beauties by Shoyeido, Japan. 1 gram for $21 including shipping:confused: I bought the last two packs that the seller had (on etsy). I hope he gets more, they are very aromatic at room temperature.

    I combined 4 bracelets to form this one long necklace. 16mm beads.

    Crocodile Agarwood, Genus Aetoxylon, solidly resinated, hard, heavy, supposedly dug-up from underneath swamps, hence the name crocodile/buaya. These beads in particular smell a little like Malaysian Aquilaria chips.
    Since time has hardened the resin, they polish to a shine, they also have chatoyance(some more than others), not to mention a variety of patterns.

    Here's some 100% sinking Papua gyrinops, high-mountain agarwood. Thick, solid slabs of resin! :)
