Deep purple brown, reddish brown, sometimes greenish brown, more or less striped, hard and heavy.
Regularly available and reasonably priced rosewood from plantations established by the Dutch on the island of Java.
Sonokeling is the same tree as Indian rosewood but differs, presumably because of the plantation origins and to some extent climate, in having a broader colour range and a little less hardness and density.
Board sizes normally fall within the range 1.2m – 1.8m in length and 80mm – 150mm width with a few exceptions.
