Heartwood ranging in colour from jet black to dark and brown striped. A typical selection contains 19 x 19 to 38 x 38 mm squares, 100-160 mm in length. Approx. 10-20 pieces total. All the pieces have waxed ends and are virtually free of cracks.
Ebony, one of the hardest, densest woods in the world, is often used in turnery, cabinet making, restoration work and instrument making for parts which need to either be particularly beautiful or resistant to wear, e.g. keys, furniture, and tool handles, jewellery, bowls, and intarsia. Ebony takes on an excellent finish due to its fine-pored structure. Density 1150 kg/m³.
To conserve and make better use of ebony resources, we offer black and brown streaked wood as an alternative. This has the same mechanical properties as pure black wood and is just as beautiful.
