Shabbos 47 – שבת מז

We learn that a pan with ashes is not considered Muktzah (for ordinary people) due to some granules of incense that are present; thus these granules determine the status of the pan.  Further on the Gemara teaches that wood chips don’t render the pan Muktzah since they aren’t valuable enough.  Why do we consider granules more valuable than wood chips?
