Rustic Amboyna Burl Turning Blank

Amboyna Burl, Pterocarpus indicus, is the World's rarest and most expensive burl, possessing incredible colors and patterns. It was used for the first Rolls Royce's dashboards. It is moderately easy to work and takes a very smooth, high polish that makes pens absolutely outstanding! This wood has air dried for 12 years and may contain a little bit of residual moisture but most is dry and ready to use. Live edges, incursions, voids, and minor checks may be present. Please see photos or inquire. This turning blank has a 3" split present. There is a bark incursion present mostly on the edges.
