Ceylon Ebony, Diospyros ebenum, can also be known as Indian Ebony. This stock originated in India. High quality boards take an amazingly high, glass-like natural polish! This species is only available in small boards and squares. Some pieces have marbled or variegated figure while some even rarer ones have fiddleback or other figure types. With its fine, dense grain, it is ideal for finger boards and bridge blanks.
