The structure is characterised by lighter, usually straight, strips that are uniformly distributed. Dark ebony trees usually grow at high altitudes. Fun fact, ebony is dense enough to sink in water!

It was originally found around the eastern coast of Mediterranean, but fastly managed to spread outside of Europe!

Zebra wood takes its name from the exceptional contrast between the golden yellow heartwood and the streaks of dark brown to black. Although the growth rings are very pronounced, the wood occurs naturally with both large grain and fine grain patterns. Zebra wood is recognisable by the light brown color with a structure of dark brown lines that are clearly visible and is considered a luxury hardwood. Fun fact, one of the major uses for zebra wood 20 years ago was in car dashboards!
