Eaglewood, Paradise wood or aloe - Oud in Arabaic- is referred to in the Old Testament and is native to tropical Asia. Agallochum is the heartwood of the tree. The tree's form is big and spreading with a dark-colored substance in its center trunk that is very fragrant. Younger branches are white without scent. Found in northern India, the tree grows as tall one hundred twenty feet. This lign has an ancient history and was noted by Herodotus for producing a substance of great value. In the East its beautifully grained wood was desired above all others. It could be finished with polish and this added to its beauty. Precious stones were set in the softer inner wood. In the ancient world aloe wood was worth its weight in gold. Once a popular belief was that this was the only tree descended to mankind from the garden of Eden. The legend says that Adam carried one of its shoots from the garden, transplanted it where he settled and every aloe tree has come from this shoot. Shoot of Paradise or Paradise Wood are other names given this tree

Such items are extremely hard to find in such perfect condition today and have become high value rarities.
