Dalbergia lanceolaria wood comes from a small tree in Laos. Large trees may reach heights of 30-45 tall and 12-18 in diameter. The trees produce a pale pink flower in April. A true Rosewood, the wood has excellent working properties and takes a fine natural polish easily. Lanceolaria produces small defect free blanks that are suitable for bowls, pens, spindles, lidded boxes, peppermills and small parts for musical instruments. This is an exceptionally rare species that is highly desired by local woodworkers; very little of it ever is imported into the US. We are offering this to satiate the popular demand for new species & beautiful, rare material.
