Grenadill, African blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon) ist often mistakenly considered as a kind of ebony, but it belongs to the rosewood family. It comes mainly from Mozambique, Africa. Colour is dark purplish brown with black streaks, giving a nearly black effect. It is an exceptionally dense, very hard and heavy (ca. 1400 kg/m3) wood, slightly oily with fine texture. It finishes exceptionally well but really it does not require any finish. These flawless blanks are tonewood quality. The photos show planed pieces, you will receive pieces with waxed end grain!
