Only very limited occurrences, therefore extremely difficult to procure veneer qualities in reasonable lengths. Then very expensive. Almost all logs have very fine wormholes, almost always yield is reduced by cracking.
Uses: Mostly used for woodturning pieces or knife handles in high-end applications due to the small dimensions. As veneer and lumber, due to the very high price, exclusively in high-end interior finishing, with lengths over 250 cm being very rare.
Character: Highly decorative wood with a very individual black and white pattern, which varies from trunk to trunk and can go from very white to very black. When overturned, the result is beautiful pictures that make the furniture made of White Ebony unique.
Special Features: It is often mistakenly assumed that real ebony must always be coal black, however, there are various types of real ebony whose basic color ranges from dark green, dark brown to reddish or even white (so-called white ebony) and is interspersed with more or less light or dark stripes. In total, there are about 200 species of ebony, which come from Africa, America, Asia and Australia.
