Description

Depending on species and origin predominantly small, solitary trees. Often with grooved trunks with branch-free logs of 2.5-7 m and 0.20-0.6 m in diameter. 

 

Heartwood from yellowish brown to reddish purple sometimes almost black colored, often very variable within a species and even in one trunk. All rosewood/jacaranda species are irregularly marked by the presence of dark brown, purple to black often wavy growth zones, showing prominent flames and streaks on the longitudinal surface. In some species, prolonged exposure to light can cause the colors to fade significantly. 

 

Applications include veneer, furniture industry (solid and veneer), paneling, musical instruments (xylophones, wind instruments), turnery, knobs, knife handles, inlays, brush backs, canes, sculpture and carving, luxury boxes, etc.
