Kingwood (Dalbergia cearensis) is also called violet wood or Bois de violette, comes from North-eastern Brazil (from Ceará and southern Bahia) and is one of the very precious woods in the timber trade. Trees only develop small stems with a maximum of ca. 20 cm diameter. The colour is violet-brown to purple with fine black veining, usually straight grained. Kingwood is excellent for wood turning and carving, as well as inlays and sculpture. It works very well and finishes to an exceptionally smooth natural finish.Sample photos, actual pieces may differ.
