Wood Atlas - Xylarium


lat. Louro Faia


Lacewood (Louro faia) comes from South America, especially from the entire Amazon basin. It has also been called lacewood or pearlwood, describing the wood’s tendency to produce silvery small beads.  This only happens when cut radially and can be quite intense, depending on the light.
The wood is hard, heavy, and somewhat brittle. It is used among other things as wood for decorative furniture or in fine crafts and also veneers.

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.
