A natural deep wax lustre intensifies the handsome beauty of this wood. Freshly cut and laid it exhibits a wide variation of colours from shimmering light golden brown, to dark glossy chestnut and darkest aubergine with hints of pistachio to olive green which then mature to a more subtle warm rich mix of all the brown tones which enhance the high arched sweeping figure with a sprinkling of tight black knots.
