Pink Ivory

Berchemia zeyheri

A fairly rare wood from Southern Africa ranging in color from light pink to watermelon red. At one time it was described as being "rarer than diamonds". It is very dense, hard and heavy and takes a very high polish. Beautiful for turnery, inlays and other precious items.

This piece has some defects, but still contains a lot of usable material.
