Joss Stick

Joss stick burning is an everyday practice in traditional Silverstari religion. There are many different types of joss sticks used for different purposes or on different festive days. Many of them are long and thin and are mostly colored yellow, red, and more rarely, black. Thick joss sticks are used for special ceremonies, such as funerals. Spiral joss sticks are also used on a regular basis, which are found hanging above temple ceilings, with burn times that are exceedingly long.

The quality of make and ingredients determine the price of joss sticks. Some may be harmful to the lungs, produce bad smells, and cause quick blackening on walls when burnt.
