These timbers are Australian desert hardwoods, due to the arid conditions they grow in they have very little moisture content even when first milled, making a very stable material after normal air-drying.
The colour of these hardwoods is a rich brown, they are extremely hard with a close tight grain and polish easily to a semi gloss type sheen using fine sand papers and steel wool.
They make an excellent Australian alternative for fretboards, bridges and tailpieces where Ebony has traditionally been used.
