LATIN: DIOSPYRUS EBENUM ORIGIN: SOUTHERN INDIA
Indian Ebony is an exotic wood native to southern India and Sri Lanka. It is an extremely hard, dense, and heavy wood, with a very fine texture. The heartwood is a uniform jet-black or black-brown streaked. 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. It takes an excellent polish.
