It is hard, resistant and with a high porosity. It is deep red when fresh, but after the cut, it oxidizes to drak violot and black.

The Brazailian Rosewood is a compact hardwood and has a pale-yellow colour, which heightens with the seasoning, becoming pinkish red.

Due to the intensive harvesting for many decardes, the Brazilian government and International Treaty banned export of this wood in 1991 in order to allow the remaining forests to recover.

During the XVIII and XIX centuries, it was strongly used by the French and English cabinet makers for inlaid works or veneerings because of its refined chormatic effects. Even today, Brazilan rose wood being a wood it is difficult to carve, it is still the essential for decorarve purposes, delicate inlaid works, precious jewels cases, and repair of ancient furniture.
