Variegated black with light brown stripes. Hard, heavy and fine textured. Very similar to Macassar Ebony with the delineation of the stripe figure being slightly less well defined.
A match for the Amara or Asian ebony veneer that is now being sold as, or alongside genuine Macassar ebony veneer.
From 2nd January 2017 if you wish to export articles that are partly or fully made from newly listed species of Rosewood, Padauk and Bubinga then the export will need to be accompanied by a CITES re-export permit. It is possible that the importer/customer of the article may need to apply for a CITES import permit from their own authorities and this should be investigated before the export happens.
