Ebony is considered to be a precious wood.
It is easily recognised due to its dark to black hue. It can more rarely be veined. It is a gleaming wood with very high polish and it is very heavy due to its high density. Ebony is a favourite amongst craftsmen and sculptors even though it is very hard to work.
Being so very heavy and hard, with its impeccable lustrous polish adding to its prestige, it is the wood of choice in making limited series, works of art or luxury ornaments.
Did you know that ebony is actually grey! Its distinctive darkness is due to a parasite. It is a mushroom that blackens the heart of the wood.
