Macassar Ebony
Macassar Ebony, Diospyros celebica, is a very rare and desired exotic Ebony wood from Asia. Diospyros in Latin originally meant "fruit of the God's" and is referenced in Ezekiel 27:15. A wood of great importance worldwide, Macassar Ebony has been used by many Kings. It is also known as Golden Ebony for the black stripes overlaying golden tones. Since it is an extremely dense wood, it is best worked with sharp tools. Uses include: picture frames, humidors, jewelry boxes, veneer, musical instruments, inlay, boxes, tool handles, pens, bottle stoppers, and carving.
