Kosipo mahogany has a reddish brown to violet brown color which tends toward brown with the increasing age of the tree. On the figured or striped longitudinal surfaces, the dark content of the vessel lines is recognizable. The interlocked fiber results in enchanting shiny stripes, whose appearance is more uniform than in utile but not as close as in sapele. It's nearly impossible for the untrained eye to detect differences in the three species of utile, sapele and kosipo.
