Jobillo - Astronium Graveolens
Jobillo heartwood (also known as Goncalo Alves) is russet brown, orange brown, or reddish brown to red with narrow to wide irregular stripes of medium to very dark brown. After exposure it becomes brown, red, or dark reddish brown with nearly black stripes. The dingy grayish or brownish-white sapwood is sharply demarcated. It is not difficult to work in spite of its high density; it finishes very smoothly, and takes a high polish. The wood weathers well and is highly resistant to moisture absorption. This wood is also known to be called Goncalo Alves & Tigerwood.
