Gaboon Ebony (Diospyros spp.) heartwood is usually jet black with little or no variation or visible grain. Occasionally dark brown or grayish-brown streaks may be present. Ebony has a fine texture with mostly straight grain. This wood can be difficult to work due to its extremely high density, but worth the reward. It has a dulling effect on cutters. Tear-out may occur on pieces that have interlocked or irregular grain. Common uses include small ornamental projects, such as piano keys, musical instrument parts, pool cues, carvings.
