Originating in S.E. Asia, especially Indonesia, this Ebony is sometimes called Malaysian Blackwood. The heartwood is dark, sometimes with black stripes or streaking and oftentimes with a greenish cast in sharp contrast to the white to straw colored sapwood. We import this in large cants up to 8 x 14" with lengths to 10 feet. The wood is hard and heavy and is capable of a fine, high polish. Excellent for turnery and precious woodworks such as musical instruments, boxes, jewelry, etc.
None of these have any punkiness to them, they are all very solid and sound. This is the one of the rarest figures you will ever see.
