Lignum vitae wood is said to be the densest wood in the world, grows extremely slowly, and extremely rare, so it is called a "wooden jewel" and is prized.
It has the characteristic of changing to a deeper green color over time. It has been treated like a jewel, since ancient times It was only allowed to have by aristocrats.
In Japan, Buddhists have Prayer beads (Juzu, Nenju). Kyoto is famous as a producing center of Prayer beads.
Prayer beads are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, counting prostrations, or the repetitions of a buddha's name.
