Bubinga - Guibourtia tessmannii
Bubinga has a resemblance to rosewood. The heartwood is pink, vivid red, or red brown with purple streaks or veins. On exposure it becomes yellow or medium brown with a reddish tint, veining becomes less conspicuous. Bubinga sapwood is whitish and clearly demarcated. The texture of this wood is fine and even with a straight or interlocked grain. Bubinga can be highly figured. Turns and machines well, and take a high polish.
