Fake Raja Kayu

This has become a concern for those looking to buy Kayu Raja as there are too many people online trying to sell them, resulting in a lot of fake Raja Kayu out there.

Often you see sellers from China who claim their Kayu Raja is the real thing, but when you look at the price, it is hard to believe.

While China has the technology to process raw materials into beads, they also can copy them or make them look real.

Raja Kayu only comes in red and white, where the white Raja Kayu are even rarer compared to the red ones. Any other colour you see out there is most likely fake.
