Black figured limba

Figured Sycamore » GERBER Humidor veneer
Trade name: Limba, black barred Country of origin: Africa Occurrence: Limba bar black occurs in West and Central Africa, tropical rainforest on the Guinea coast from Guinea to Angola. Limba always has a dark core. If the dark core is less than 15% of the diameter, it is traded as normal Limba. If the core is 1/3 or more of the diameter, it is called Limba bar black. Mostly it is single blocks, therefore regular supply is not possible. The special structure of the bar formation is exceptionally rare and very sought after, especially in black Limba. Uses: Limba figured black is used in high-quality interior finishing in all areas, but only in countries and regions that appreciate figured veneers. Character: In general, Limba is pale yellow in color and plain, and is often used for door veneer (brushable). In the figured form of black limba, with a disproportionate amount of heartwood, such a log may be considered unique. Special Features: The darker, textured wood yields decorative sliced veneers with a walnut-like appearance used for paneling and inlay.
