The heartwood can be light greyish-brown, dark chocolate or purplish-black.
The sapwood is whitish- to yellowish- brown, unless stained or steamed to match the heartwood. The slightly open grain is typically straight, but can be curly or wavy.
The texture is usual coarse but develops a lustrous patina in time. Burrs (burls), stump-wood and crotches produce notable mottled curly and wavy figure.
