African Blackwood (Dalbergia melanozylon) is native to southern Africa. Known as the original Ebony and was imported to Ancient Egypt as Ebony. It is technically a rosewood, so it is more stable than Ebony. It is also why it is closely monitored for import and export. It is often completely black with no discernable grain. It is tough on handtools, but turns and finishes well.
