East Indian Rosewood is a true rosewood and on everyone’s short list of the world’s most beautiful lumbers. Prized for both veneers and hardwoods this specie is found in many Asian antiques. It has a very fine texture and brown to purple heartwood. As with other members of the dalbergia family, East Indian rosewood is very dense and will yield a soft satin finish.
