Ziricote - Cordia dedecandra
Ziricote heartwood is tobacco colored to reddish brown, with irregular dark brown or blackish streaks and variegations, with more or less of an oily or waxy appearance; rather sharply demarcated from the grayish or yellowish sapwood. Luster variable; texture fine to medium, grain variable. It resembles Brazilian Rosewood because of its unique grain lines and tendency for spider webbing. Ziricote is a very dense and heavy wood which allows for a bright, glass-like tone. Ziricote has a high durability rating.
