This wood has a straight grain with growth rings that are barely visible.  There is a significant change in color from the freshly sanded and finished wood to the matured floor.  When fresh, this wood is very yellow and light in color.  Within a few weeks to months it will mature to an overall deep golden-brown color. This is a very hard wood ideal for commercial and residential installations.
