Brazilian Rosewood

Botanical Name:

Dalbergia nigra



Also known as: 


Brazilian Rosewood is an endangered specie and is currently illegal to export it in Brazil. For this reason it is nearly impossible to source it since it can only be obtained from trees harvested before 1992. Brazilian Rosewood ranges in color from brick red to violet with spidery black streaks known as spiderwebbing. The smell is like roses when freshly cut. Traditionally this specie has been used to produce musical instruments because of its excellent acoustics. Other similar-looking woods include Honduras Rosewood, Bolivian Rosewood and Indian Rosewood.
