INCLUDES 1 WOOD BLANK (several blanks are shown to indicate the range of color/grain to expect). Figured Marblewood, scientific name Marmaroxylon racemosum, is from Northeastern South America. Heartwood is a yellow to golden brown, with irregular brown, purple, or black streaks. Sapwood is paler than the heartwood (solid yellowish color) and lacks the contrasting streaks of the heartwood. The grain tends to be straight or slightly interlocked; texture is medium with open pores. The high contrast between the golden body and the much darker streaks give it an appearance somewhat similar to natural marble, hence the common name of "Marblewood" for this species. This blank is in the process of air drying and contains residual moisture. Completely wax sealed.
