The Narra wood tree is the national tree of the Philippines, also known as the Ancient Tree. It is not a true sandalwood, but is sometimes referred to as Red Sandalwood, and may have a light rose scent. Our Narra wood beads range from light yellow or tan to deep rich brown. In old homes, Narra wood was used to make tables and closets. In modern times it is more rare and varieties with knotted wood grains are extremely valuable.
