We source from various parts of Brazil so there can be a slight difference in the wood types. The wood is organic so one part of the tree will be yellow/pink with a tight grain yet another part of the same tree maybe wide grained and dark.
The heartwood is light brown to pinkish brown. It has black stripes in the length direction, caused by strong resin canals.
Heartwood color ranges from light yellowish to medium brown, sometimes with darker streaks. The grain is straight to shallowly interlocked. Texture can vary from fine to coarse. Good natural luster.
