A three ton bed made of one of the world's most rare and precious wood was auctioned recently. Agalwood is also known as "a fossil wood" which gives off a pleasing fragrance as it grows older. Experts say the wood that made this bed came from a tree that was probably 1000 years old and grew in Indonesia.

The bed is gracefully carved with dragons and waves and is called a national treasure. Without any trace of fractures in its body, the bed is believed to be made out of a single Agalwood block. The bed's estimated value is over $66,000
