Pau Rosa means rosewood in Portuguese, but this species (Swartzia fistuloides, syn. Bobgunnia fistuloides, B. madagascariensis) is no true rosewood, as the name suggests. The woods most pink colour and great density may have helped to obtain this descriptive popular trade name. The tree grows occasionally shattered in the south-east African rainforests of Mozambique and can grow up to impressive heights of approx. 30 meters and up to 1,10 m diameter.
The wood of Pau Rosa is very hard, very dense and heavy (approx. 1100 kg/m3) and is very rot resistant. Due to the hardness, machining is only advisable with very sharp tools, but the results are very good and worth the effort!
The sapwood is pale yellowish, the heartwood pink, brown-red to dark-brown-purple, vividly striped and often interlocked grained, very fine-pored and often covered with a translucent yellow shimmer.  Its uses are very diverse, ranging from veneer and carvings to furniture, turned objects and musical instruments.
