Nearly white in colour with a brown heartwood and a coarse grain. Almost without parallel for toughness and elasticity.
These dimensions are cut in the USA as ski blanks but in this country are considered ideal for laminations in the manufacture of traditional longbows.
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.
