Tamarind trees (Tamarindus indica) were native to tropical Africa, but have spread to all tropical regions of the world. The tree is evergreen, reaches up to 20 ms height. Tamarinds supply people with a lot of products, nearly every part of the slow growing tree is used. The heartwood is rather small, very hard, and heavy, dark red-brown to purplish-brown. The sapwood is pale-yellow, and if a tree is affected by fungus, insects or other rotting processes in the humid climate of a forest, a spalting process producing really stunning landscape-like patterns of coloration and streaking thin lines may occur, often resulting in black, pink, grey and multicoloured streaked wood. A section through a spalted log shows the lines in the sapwood! In some cases insects may have caused tiny holes, which can easily be filled with a drop of super glue.
