It is, of course, Amboyna Burl from the very popular, particularly deep red fraction.
The Amboyna (Pterocarpus indicus) probably gets its name from its prevalence on the island of Ambon in Indonesia. It is a species of padauk tree, which are not exactly rare and even extend as far as Africa. However, the 3-dimensionality and distinctive beauty of the Amboyna is second to none. Moreover, since it has a quite faultless burl, amboine is a highly coveted veneer wood and is used, for example, on Rolls Royce fittings.
The burl wood is hard, heavy, and amazingly free of fissures apart from the occasional crack caused by drying. The typical red color may vary from a bright orange to a deep dark red in its tone. Amboyna burls with outstanding burls consistently fetch high prices, especially since the supply does not seem secure. Very little is available on the market right now.
