GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The sapwood is not distinct from the heartwood, which is generally yellowish white to buff. Some species produce a streaky core while others produce a jet black core, which is marketed as Ebony.

Grain is straight to slightly interlocked.

Texture is fine and even.

Vessels are few to moderately numerous, very small to small in a few species but mediumsized in others, mostly in radial pairs or groups of three, four or up to eight in some species.

Wood parenchyma is abundant, in narrow, closely and regularly spaced apotracheal bands.

Rays are very fine, not visible to the naked eye. 

 

USES:

The darker streaked core wood is highly prized as a superior cabinet wood, suitable for high class decorative furniture, sliced veneer, panelling and other interior finishing. The lighter coloured material is suitable for furniture, plywood, pallets and other general utility purposes.
