Bracelet # 113, vietnamese agarwood


Bracelet made from vietnamese agarwood.

The Vietnamese agarwood tree is a type of evergreen tree that is native to Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. The tree, also known as Aquilaria crassna, can grow up to 30 meters tall and has a broad, spreading crown of dark green leaves.

The most distinctive feature of the Vietnamese agarwood tree is its ability to produce agarwood, a highly prized and aromatic resin that is formed in response to injury or infection. The resin is created as a natural defense mechanism, with the tree producing a complex chemical response that leads to the formation of the fragrant and valuable resin.

In Vietnam, agarwood trees are typically found in the central and southern regions of the country, where they grow in tropical forests and other wooded areas. The trees are often difficult to find and harvest, as they are typically scattered throughout the forest and can be difficult to distinguish from other trees.
