Heartwood is a beautiful pink-yellow with a pronounced striped figure in varying shades of salmon pink & rose-red to violet. It has a fragrant scent. The grain is straight but more often irregular; the texture is moderately fine. Extremely hard to work. The timber is capable of a very high natural finish & can be planed & sanded smoothly. Pre-boring for nailing is necessary; it glues well & takes an excellent polish.
