Broad (4 to 10 cm), reddish-grey sapwood, heart good deposited and a little darker from light red to reddish brown, sometimes violet toned, similar to mahogany and turns darker after some time. Pores are rough and scattered. The wood is medium-hard and shrinks moderately. Wood rays are fine, only good visible as small mirrors on radial areas. Storage cells on cross-sections define as bright, very small strap the growth layers, which are only noticeable with the loupe on plain areas. Direction of grain with different strong distinctive irregular twist, partly causing a narrow and very regular glamour-stripes.
