The second densest wood in the world, Argentine Lignum Vitae is naturally green in color and full of oily properties that make it exceptional for turning. Color only ages more with time and especially with light exposure, yielding beautiful and very unique projects. The grain is slightly interlocked with fine, even texture. You'll love the polish this wood delivers. Delightful, perfume-like fragrance makes this wood even more enjoyable to work. Argentine Lignum Vitae is in a different Genus than Lignum Vitae, but both genera are classified in the same family: Zygophyllaceae. Both woods are extremely hard, heavy, oily and have similar colors and patterns. This wood cannot ship outside of the USA. Bulnesia sarmientoi
