Calamander Wood

Calamander Wood

Calamander wood is a very close relation to Coromandel and is also a native of India and South East Asia. Like Coromandel, it is a dense, close-grained wood, but tends to be more striped and consistent in appearance, being very similar to what we know today as Macassar Ebony.
