East Indian Rosewood is an exotic wood native to the Southern India peninsula, and is prized for it's use in custom pool cues, furniture, and cabinetry. The color varies from golden brown to dark purple brown, with a unique striped figure. It is hard and dense, with a coarse texture and good stability. Although moderately difficult to machine or work with hand tools, East Indian Rosewood is excellent for wood turning and veneer, and finishes extremely well.
