Ebony Gaboon 3/4" x 3" x 24"
The quality of the wood is very good. One piece was already splitting when it arrived.
Although it is not mentioned in the product description, this comes covered in wax so it is very wet. Do not plan on using it for anything for 6 to 8 months after you remove the wax coating as it will need to dry first. Shrinkage (about 10% on flat sawn boards) and checking/splitting will cause problems if you don't dry it first. From personal experience with "green" (i.e., wet) ebony, 6 months is pushing it a bit.
Because it is so wet, you should also expect to get some checking as it dries. Ebony is very dificult to dry without spliting.
