East Indian Ebony

(Diospyros Ebenum)

Indian Ebony, sometimes called Ceylon Ebony,  is an exotic wood native to southern India and Sri Lanka that is extremely hard, dense, and a heavy wood, with a very fine texture. The heartwood is a uniform jet-black or grey or black-brown streaked. Pale yellow sapwood is clearly demarcated from heartwood. Indian Ebony is somewhat difficult to work with hand and machine tools, but is excellent for wood turning and carving, as well as inlays, tool and knife handles, door knobs, piano and organ keys, and instrument wood. Ironically, the very best quality ebony looks like black plastic. It takes an excellent polish. Grain is typically straight or sometimes irregular, with a fine, uniform texture.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
