Wood Atlas - Xylarium


lat. Brosimum paraense
Red Satiné


Bloodwood (Brosimum paraense) also called satiné or muirapiranga comes from Central and South America from countries such as Brazil, Venezuela, Peru ,and Panama.
The wood is very hard, dense, durable, and heavy. It can be easily worked and has an intense red color that will lose barely any intensity over the years. It is traditionally used to make furniture, turned pieces, and knife handles, but it has also been used to make guitars and inlays.

Find the right wood by appearance!
Our wood atlas makes it significantly easier to find the right wood for your projects.
But, as you know, wood is a natural product and what us shown here is only
a sample and the actual piece may vary in color and pattern.

Tip: Use the left and right arrows to navigate; to select the wood currently show, click on the link below the image. The wood atlas is by no means exhaustive and is constantly being expanded. But, on the whole, almost all the woods we have in stock are shown.
