A parasitic fungus gives it its dark black color but it's originally gray. Its natural appearance is very smooth and glistening. Ebony comes mainly from Africa and it's becoming increasingly rare.
It is known that Egyptians used the wood to make small valuable objects.
From the twelfth century ebony was used for the design of chess sets or musical instruments such as flute or oboe.
