This tasbih is made of a rare oily wood specific to the Mediterranean region of Turkey, Rhamnus Oleoides or the biblical buckthorn. This wood is used by Taurus mountains' nomadic Turkoman (Yuruk) tribes to make talismans. It will get a shiny lustre with a darker tone in your hands. It features a closedly carved ring on the imame bead, a design common to classical Ottoman tasbihs.
