Any current info on prices/buyers? Seem to recall someone mentioned a Carson as a good buyer quite a while back. Thanks

dried castor has to be a pale brown colour to be graded Western pale
special market for that grade
does not dis-colour when used in the product.

mostly from beaver raised on trembling aspen or popular

And not fresh frozen. That can make castor dark colored.

Good idea, thanks.

I sold 1lb 2oz to a local buyer for $100 a month ago. What Iíd like to know is who the buyers that donít use it in lure sell to? I think some goes to Europe, how much are those buyers paying $2-300/lb?? I have no idea but there must be a decent margin.

The overseas castoreum market is a pretty secretive affair from what I have seen. I hear that quite a bit goes to Pakistan and also quite a bit goes to western Europe. I think it all makes its way into the perfume trade at some point.
