Kingwood, Dalbergia cearensis, is a rare rosewood with violet/purple and light black streaks. From the Atlantic forest in Brazil, Kingwood has been the wood of Kings for hundreds of years in France, England, and Europe. Used extensively for furniture, cabinets, instruments, and fine articles, it has graced the halls of many fine, historical locations. The wood turns well and takes a high natural polish with little effort. Ships to USA only due to Cites regulations.
