Black & White Ebony Veneered Panels & Jointed Veneer
Black & White Ebony is a rare & beautifully distinctive member of the true ebony family with a black & white alternating grain. It is also known as White Ebony, Royal White Ebony, Pale Moon Ebony, Mun Ebony & Gaub Tree, and is a short deciduous tree that grows in Southeast Asia, from Burma/Myanmar to its main source, Laos.
Black and White Ebony heartwood is pale milky white/yellow to tan with spectacular colour contrast in way of distinct irregular inky-black varegation flowing across it.
Fine textured with mostly straight grain and taking a very high polish, there are limited quantities available of this striking & valuable veneer.
Black & White Ebony is liable to exhibit tiny (usually 2mm) insect holes and/or hairline checks - this is quite normal and is usually resolved in the finishing process.
