The heartwood is a vivid reddish-orange when freshly cut, but changes over time to bright red, red or coral-pink with dark streaks. It can darken further to a reddish or purplish brown or black. The colour fades with age. The grain can range from straight to interlocked, with a fine to medium texture and a natural sheen. When newly cut, the sapwood, which is clearly demarcated from the heartwood, is white, but it turns to grey or brownish yellow when exposed to light.

Uses: Quality furniture and joinery, cabinetmaking, heavy-duty and parquet flooring, tool and knife handles, office furniture, shuttles and sporting goods. It is also sliced for decorative veneers.
