(Diospyros crassiflora)

Heartwood is usually jet-black, dark brown or grayish-brown streaks may be present. Typically there is little to no visible grain, which is usually straight but can also be interlocked.

Gaboon Ebony has a fine even texture with very high natural luster and occasional black mineral deposits can be present. The heartwood is very durable and resistant to insects.

Due to its extremely high density, Gaboon Ebony can be difficult to work, dulling  cutters quickly.  Glueing can be difficult sometimes due to the high oil content found in this wood; however it finishes well, and polishes to a high luster.
