Pictures of precious wood
Kingwood (Dalbergia cearensis), the wood of a Brazilian descendant of the Dalbergia (which include Bahia rosewood, grenadilla or cocobolo), of an average height of about 10 and reaching a diameter of perhaps half a meter. The heartwood is dark brown-purple and has light to dark brown grain strips. Kingwood is very hard and heavy, can be cut, planing and sanding moderately. However, it is very susceptible to cracking and splintering off.
The wood is mostly used in the veneer production, or for small turnery, inlays or decoration work. Also in the billard-area when used for cues. As the wood polish very well, the finish is simply gorgeous, a highly decorative wood, a true kings wood :-)
