Cutting: Small planks and squares
Other names: Brown ebony
Dense and glassy deep coffee brown with a layered structure like wenge, but with a much finer texture, resulting in a classic ‘partridge wing’ figure on slab sawn faces.
Partridgewood is generically related to the ebano listed here. It is marginally lighter in weight and in colour but just as dangerous if you drop a piece on your foot.
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.
