The heartwood is some of the most fantastic grain around. Sometimes you can actually make out landscape scence in the grain. It's a rich dark brown with thin black lines with some silvery flecking where the rays are randomly revealed. Zircote grow randomly in it's growth range and so is not widely available and can be very expensive.
The wood is very hard to dry and is prone to checking (cracking) and warping.
