Lignum Vitae (Ironwood)
Extremely hard and heavy, difficult to work with and getting more and more expensive. Used for pulleys, wheels, and balls in Central America for years, it is now in short supply. Stripes of olive-green, dark yellow, tan, dark brown and black; many pieces have an unusual flecked herringbone effect in the grain.
