The heartwood which is pinkish brown to light red changes to an intense reddish brown color as the wood dries.

The characteristic interlocked fiber of the wood results in beautiful shimmery stripes, which frequently run uniformly and very close together. Fine comb grain on the radial surface also enlivens the veneer figure.
