Ziricote has about the closest grain resemblance to Brazilian Rosewood of any lumber, although the color is darker and lacking the reds and oranges. It is a superior furniture and musical instrument lumber. With its very fine texture and high density, Ziricote will take a satin finish with just sanding. The grain carves beautifully and is often used for sculptures. Ziricote is very rare and expensive.
