Ziricote (Cordia dodecandra) comes from Mexico, Guatemala and Belize and is a considerably small tree. The logs are seldom over 40-50 cm in diameter traded, thus the wood is pretty rare and not easy to find. The sapwood is creamy white, the heartwood colour ranges from tobacco brown to dark brown or nearly black with spidery black pigment lines that often overlap, forming landscape figures or spider webbings. Ziricote is the most dramatic looking member of the Cordia genus. Its wood is very much appreciated by knife and pen makers.
