Thanks to its inherent beauty, rich colours and exceptional hardness, Jatoba is one of the most popular of all the exotic species.
It is often used for hardwearing products such as handrails, sports equipment and wood floors because of its hardness.
The sapwood can have broad figuring, light pink and sometimes greyish tones. The heartwood ranges from salmon pink to reddish brown with dark streaks. Over time Jatoba deepens in colour to a rich vibrant red.
