Snakewood stands out as one of the most aesthetically unique exotic woods in the world. Its muted light yellow-, orange- or red-tinted brown underlying base color is covered by tight, uniform patterns of darker brown or black patches which give the appearance of snakeskin. The wood is straight-grained with a fine texture.
Pretty half log with some heart defect and a knot. nice figure.
For clarity, this is a half log. i.e. half round on one side and flat on the other.
