Guatemalan Mora

Guatemalan Mora

Mora is known as Guatemalan Tigerwood, Nora, Dakama, or Pracuuba. It is a very heavy and hard wood with outstanding strength properties. It is particularly resistant to wear. This material stains & polishes well, and is particularly beautiful for boxes due to the nice polish that is easily attainable. The heartwood varies from chocolate-brown to reddish brown. The grain is straight to commonly interlocked, producing an attractive wavy or sometimes ribbon figure. Specific Gravity averages .78 based on oven-dry weight. The tree grows 2-3 feet in diameter and 100-120 feet in height.
