Heartwood ranges from pale pink to a deeper reddish brown, sometimes with streaks of medium to dark reddish brown. Colors darken with age. Grain is straight to interlocked, with a medium to coarse texture. Good natural luster and a high degree of chatoyancy.
Generally easy to work, though tear-out can be a problem if the grain is interlocked. May stain and react with iron-based fasteners in damp conditions. Glues, turns, and finishes well.
