Swartzia cubensis

This is a large tree 2-4' diameter, by up to 120' tall from Mexico & Central America. The wood is very dense and fairly fine-grained. Because of its hardness it can be difficult to work but it takes a fine polish. Its dark color leads some to call it Mexican Ebano and very dark pieces can be used as a substitute for true black Ebony, especially in laminations and inlays. Straight-grained wood can be used for musical instrument fingerboards and bridge blanks.
