Brazilian Boxwood is also known as Castello (and also as Brazilian Olivio when olive hearted). While it is not a true Boxwood it is similar in appearance and, unlike real European Boxwood, available commercially as a veneer.

Brazilian Boxwood is a light golden yellow colour and on occasion some older trees may develop an olive-brown heart which gives this veneer a totally different appearance, resembling Mediterranean Olive. This veneer is sometimes marketed under the name Brazilian Olivio.

Very close-grained and with a fine, lustrous texture, Brazilian Boxwood veneer polishes to an excellent finish (clear finish is often used to preserve its unique colour).
