Agar wood is very unique. It is a dark resinous heartwood that forms in large evergreens native to southeast Asia that have become infected with mold. In order to stop the infection's progression, the tree produces a dark and aromatic resin, which creates a very dense, dark, resin-embedded heartwood known as Agar wood. Before this infection, the wood is naturally pale in colour and lacks its distinctive odor. Agar wood is valued in many cultures for its stunning natural colouring as well as its unique fragrance, and is often used for incense and perfumes. Agar wood symbolizes the replenishment of life after illness as well as the power of the circle of life. It is a reminder to embrace change and rejuvenates the wearer.
Ancient people believed amber was solidified sunshine or the petrified tears of god, however amber is actually fossilized tree sap estimated from 20 million to 200 million years old - most amber is around 50 million years old. Blue amber, found in Indonesia, is the rarest and most sought after type of amber. It is characterized by a natural blue hue, which can range in consistency from pale yellow amber with a slight blue hue, visible mainly when the piece is against black, to a cherry red piece that is nearly purple, all the way to a piece that is a rich to inky blue. This blue hue is amplified under ultraviolet light, and when under a flashlight the light-beam within blue amber will look aqua green or blue.
