General Description

The sapwood is narrow and almost white in color. The heartwood is a pale pink to reddish-brown, that darkens upon exposure. The grain is generally straight, however the large rays produce a flakey grain pattern especially on the quarter sawn face. Some say the fleck resembles lace. The wood has a coarse, but even texture.
