Also very rare is the particular growth form as Mallee. There are oil glands in the bark and marrow. Resin gullies of several millimeters are often visible in the wood, which start spontaneously and end again. These are very unique and may also be very decorative.
The wood is medium hard and can be worked well. Marri has a light to dark brown color, sometimes it shimmers golden or is beautifully sealed, as in this present piece. The wood is used in interior design, in furniture and decorative arts and crafts.
