In -depth finishing: ask the bottom to ask, understand the main Indian old sandalwood sandalwood and the maintenance method of playing


Sandalwood is an ancient and mysterious rare tree species, known as “sacred trees” in the religious field; in Feng Shui, it is known as the “tree of wealth”; in history, because of symbolizing power and status, Known as the “tree of the royal family”; in the modern market economy, it is known as the “Golden Tree”, and is called a “cash cow tree” in Australia.

Sandalwood is mainly produced in India, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Southeast Asia, Australia, Fiji and other hot and humid areas. Among them, Laoshan Sandal, which is produced in the Mosol region of India.

Indian sandalwood is characterized by its white and yellowish colors, large oil, and the aroma exudes. The texture, color, and fragrance produced in Australia, Indonesia and other places are inferior. Therefore, people are used to calling India’s sandalwood, which is called “old mountain sandalwood” after Chunhua, and called “Johor Bahru Soda” from other places.

Let’s first get to know sandalwood.

Generally speaking, there is a distinction between Laoshan Sandalwood and Johor Bahru sandalwood. This origin. It is said that it is a spice importer a long time ago, because India’s sandalwood is difficult to export, and it is developed from other places. After importing, consumers found that they were not the same as before. The importers said: “It used to be relatively deep in the mountains, and it was a long time. It was called Laoshan. Now it is finished. This is a relatively shallow mountain and a new one. So it is called Johor Bahru. “Later, the so -called” old mountain “refers to the sandalwood produced by India, and Johor Bahru is produced by other newly developed areas.

Overall, it is divided into several types:


1. The old mountain incense, also known as the old mountain incense or Indian incense, is produced in India. It is generally large, straight, smooth and dense, and mellow aroma. It is the best in sandalwood wood.


2. Johor Bahru incense, generally produced in Australia, has thin strips and weak aroma.

3. The Gate incense is produced in Indonesia and the current East Timor. The door of the door, the transliteration of “Timor”, is curved and has branches and scars.

4. Sydney fragrance, sandalwood produced in Australia or surrounding the South Pacific island country, Fiji sandalwood is the best. Sydney is generally transferred from Hong Kong to the Mainland.


The above is the basic division of sandalwood. Now we will focus on talking about the old mountain sandalwood in India.


There are three major sandalwood -producing areas in India, which are concentrated in the southwest of India, which are Karnatakbon (Mosol region), Tamilnadbon, and Karara. The old mountain sandalwood in the Mosol production area is known for its aroma and incense type; the Tamil production area has good oily and density; the smell produced in the Karara area is more characteristic, and the current acceptance is not wide. It can be said that each has its own Qianqiu, just like the representatives of our high school in that year. The grades are very good, but they all have advantageous subjects.

Indian old mountain sandalwood often has a pungent fragrance and special smell, so it is often put on hold for a period of time before making incense, and then use it to be calm, mellow and after use, and then it has decades or even hundreds of years of sandalwood. At this time, the aroma of sandalwood is very warm, mellow, and refreshing. It can be described as a veritable “old mountain sandalwood”. The sandalwood wood used immediately after cutting is far worse.

Now all India is called Laoshan. This statement is not fair enough to the traditional old mountains of the traditional meaning. Some of the old mountain sandalwood from India may also be new sandalwood imported from India.

The top old mountain sandalwood in the strict sense refers to the old trees of at least sixty years, and after the cut off at least two or thirty years (some said that after forty years of the smell, the smell starts to become the realm) to make the wood really achieve the wood nature reached The mellow state, its flavor is pure, soft, warm and sweet wooden aroma, and slightly rose, ointment and animal aroma, the aroma is consistent and long -lasting. And even more than sixty years old sandalwood wood, after the decomposition, has not been aging, and is not the best sandalwood at the strong taste. Some Tibetan friends said: “Sandalwood is domineering, you can’t eat.” Some merchants show off his sandalwood beads, saying how strong the taste is, and it is also embarrassed in the pants pockets. The mellow and sweet realm.

The top old mountain sandalwood wood is mellow and long, and the wood is delicate and luster. The color is uniform and the material is delicate. They all think that the old mountains are the best.


Take a look at the Sandal Kangxi “Jingtian Qinmin” Sandalwood Jade Seal sold by the Hong Kong Sotheby’s 81 million Hong Kong dollars:

The top old mountain sandalwood wood can ensure stable quality. Regarding the problem of sandalwood cracking, the old sandalwood wood after the fell, after two or thirty years, the wood nature has been very stable, and the cracking has cracked; the cracking is stable. The beads made of top -level old sandalwood wood are not cracked, and the quality is very stable. If you use new materials, it is very unstable and prone to cracking, so it is best not to buy new sandalwood beads.

Regarding the sinking color and quality of sandalwood.

I. color aspect

The old sandalwood beads of India are usually divided into three types: yellow, red, and black meat. Black meat is the most rare. Indian sandalwood grows from yellow brown to dark brown to reddish brown with its age. The industry in the industry believes that the highest level of sandalwood in India is to reach deep and reddish brown.

The annual wheel and vertical texture of sandalwood is not significantly changed as the age of the tree grows. The older the tree age, the older the annual wheel and texture. Look, it is true. Therefore, the sandalwood wood with obvious texture is not the top old mountain sandalwood.

II. About Shen Shui


Agarwood Sandalwood, especially new materials or high oil content, will density. From the perspective of wooden, the older the sandalwood, the greater the oily, and with the age of the age, the sink from sinking to sinking water, and the tail of the head is one. The state in the middle. Therefore, there are reasons to believe that the sinking water must be greater than the oilyness of not sinking water. From this point of view, the non -artificial sinking water (artificial plus 502 or leading lead) should also be used as a quality indicator

In addition, the old mountain sandalwood wood that is moisturized and density is high, and after soaking, wipe it with cloth, and the luster is easy to recover. The reason is because its very moisturized oil and hard materials make the pores not easily open enough to prevent water from being damaged on its surface gloss. And if the new sandalwood is not brought out of the slurry, the gloss is difficult to recover after immersion.

From the perspective of wooden, the older the sandalwood, the greater the oily, the larger the density, so the sinking water is generally old -fashioned, and the natural price is relatively high, but there are also some bad merchants who make black meat sinking water and confuse players , So you need to be vigilant when buying.

Let’s talk

First of all, we must emphasize:


Do not have a hurry to play with wooden bead bracelets. Beautiful and charming bags are not formed overnight, nor can it be able to use the method of moving to other people. It is also possible to desperately set a few hours a few hours a day in order to pursue fast paste. Even if your skills are deep and your fingers are not sour, the wooden pearls are estimated to be hurt to a certain time.


Old mountain sandalwood is a good material, and the last plate is like the rhino horns beads. It is very dark and bright, and the changes in the packets are completely gorgeous.

After receiving the new bracelet, first play with white cotton or white gloves for a period of time, a few days to half a month, not in a hurry, this is because the surface of the sandalwood hand beads has not yet greased, and there is no thin formation. The thin protective layer, if it is dipped in water or dirt at this time, it takes a long time to be worn to slowly resolve, affecting beauty and smell.


1. Rubing with a soft cotton cloth for a week can be considered as polished.


2. Put a week naturally. Let the beads dry naturally. At the same time, the surface is evenly connected with the air to form a fine and uniform oxidation protective layer. Pay attention to avoid high temperature and direct sunlight.

3. Start the hand disk. At this time, the hands must have just been washed and have been dry. Please do not direct the sweaty hand. It is best to wear a cotton glove plate. You can directly disk. Pay attention to the pores of the pearls. In about 30 minutes, after a week to two weeks, you can feel that there is a sticky sticky sensation when you dry the beads of the hand plate. In fact, this is a thin layer of paste.


4. At this time, you can place it for a while, and then naturally dry it, and it can also harden the pulp for a certain degree, usually about a week.

5. The process of repeating 3 and 4 is 5 to 6 times, which is 3 months. You will see that your bead is very aura and luster. Essence

6. Do not contact the more water at any time at any time. If the beads are dirty, you can wipe it with a slightly moist cotton cloth several times, and then play it for a period of time. Especially in the mouth of the mouth, the most taboo of Panzhu is the quick success. You can only take the process and the process. As the beads change, you can also get a spiritual pleasure at the same time.


The suggestion is: without water, and naturally wear it. After you look at it again three months, you will be surprised. Everyone should be more patient, and the natural effect is the best.

Panzo is smoother with cotton plates, rubbing it with this cloth, and the beads will become very transparent and very clean in the later period. If you have sweat directly on your hand, there will be a layer of oil on the surface, which contains sweat and mud. This kind of bead looks very light on the surface, but it is dirty, and this light is dark.
