Ebony is a heavy wood generally jet black in color with variable gray streaks. It is durable, works nicely and its rich color and it is often used in musical instruments.
Koa is found only on the Hawaiian Islands and is much prized for its beautiful iridescent wood that is reddish brown with dark black or brown lines. The great depth of figure makes it ideal for use in musical instruments, fine furniture and jewelry boxes.
Found in Northern California and Oregon, claro walnut is highly figured with a rich brown color and striking grain patterns, especially in the crotch areas, where large limbs meet the trunk.
