Macassar ebony (Diospyros celebica) has a dramatic striped appearance, somewhat similar to zebrawood. Dark brown to black heartwood with contrasting bands of yellow to golden brown. Very hard, dense, and heavy, it can be very brittle at its heart. The wood is excellent for turning. Has a dulling effect on cutters. The grain is usually straight but tear-out may occur on pieces that have interlocked or irregular grain. Used for high-end cabinetry, inlay work, musical instruments, or decorative applications. Southeast Asia.
