Please note that you are buying a GENUINE SANDALWOOD product from the jungles of Karnataka. The trees that grow in the Mysore region of Karnataka have long been considered as the source of the best sandalwood in the world. They were the preferred choice for religious ritual, artistic and architectural needs of both Hinduism and Buddhism. Real sandalwood is extremely rare and its production is closely controlled by the the Indian government. All our beads and wood come from authorized resellers, specifically small carving shops in Karnataka that have been working with this precious commodity for generations.
All other types of sandalwood such as GREEN and BLACK are basically marketing ploys that sell products from a different and much less expensive type of wood. These trees do not belong to the sandalwood family.
RED sandalwood also comes from an all together different tree. It has a long history of application for religious ceremonies, ayurvedic medicine, marquetry and carving. Some retailers believe that red sandalwood comes from a rosewood tree. That is not correct. The rosewood being much darker and denser, is mainly used for furniture and carving. It is rarely used for malas..
