Rosewood can vary in color from a darker chocolate brown to a lighter purplish or reddish brown, with darker contrasting streaks. The black streaks can sometimes form a unique grain pattern that is sometimes referred to as "spider-webbing" or "landscape". Lighter yellowish sapwood is clearly demarcated from the heartwood.

These woods are very hard, but create some of the finest carvings.
