East Indian rosewood (Dalbergia latifolia) is a tree that grows up to 25m high and is native to south-eastern India and some Indonesian islands. The use of the natural forests from which the East Indian rosewood originates is strictly regulated by the state forestry administration.
The colour of the wood can vary - the sapwood is white-grey to creamy yellow with a partly reddish tinge, while the heartwood, clearly separated by black stripes, is dark purple or purple-brown. The texture of the wood is very hard and durable with a high bending and compression strength. The wood is used for decorative veneers, in woodturning and for making musical instruments.
Dimensions: approx. 160 x 160 x 60 mm

Finely grained wood may contain imperfections such as open knots, bark inclusions, or cracks that are typical of the species. These flaws come from the way the tree has grown and are completely natural. They can usually be filled with low-viscosity cyanoacrylate (super glue) and wood dust.
