DETAILS
Figured Marblewood, scientific name Marmaroxylon racemosum, is from Northeastern South America.  Trees are typically 65-100 feet tall with a maximum base diameter of 2 feet. Heartwood is a yellow to golden brown, with irregular brown, purple, or black streaks. Sapwood is paler than the heartwood (solid yellowish color) and lacks the contrasting streaks of the heartwood. The sapwood usually goes up to about 1″ thick into the trunk.  The grain tends to be straight or slightly interlocked; texture is medium with open pores.  The high contrast between the golden body and the much darker streaks give it an appearance somewhat similar to natural marble, hence the common name of “Marblewood” for this species. Marblewood’s overall appearance is very similar to African Zebrawood although Marblewood tends to have a finer texture.  Common uses for Marblewood include: flooring, sliced veneer, turned articles, cabinetry, gallery furniture, and fine woodworking.
