Product Description

The heartwood is light and dark chocolate brown.
The wood is hard, heavy, durable, close-grained and resistant to termites.
It sandpapers well and takes oils and varnish well finishing with a satin like lustre.
When freshly worked it has a distinctive, sweetish smell.
The wood is almost indestructible.
Samples taken from the Great Zimbabwe, carbon dates to be between 1240 and 1530 years old, were found to be well preserved.
It is used in musical instruments, turning and carving.
Approximate measurements 5/8' x 5/8' x 5'
Colour and grain pattern may vary from pictured sample, due to this being a natural product.
