The ziricote belongs to the family of Fabaceae and originates from Central America. It can reach a growth height of up to 30 m and a trunk diameter of 1 m. The wood of the zircicote, although not a real rosewood, is strongly reminiscent of the Rio rosewood and shows some of its typical grains, such as landscape-like layered structures and in-painted irregular gradients that – not as with other woods – follow the annual rings. The wood is used for knife handles and because of its excellent sound properties for guitars, while the veneer is used for the production of exclusive furniture.
