The East Indian rosewood originates from India and has been a very valued high-grade timber for centuries. Even back then it was used because of its special colouring. It can reach a growth height of up to 25 m and a trunk diameter of 1,5 m. The East Indian rosewood plays a big role in the production of musical instruments. Due to its density, hardness and sound properties, it is used for marimbar, xylophones, guitars and records. Its veneer is used in high-quality interior design, in the production of furniture and panelling.
