Goncalo Alves Pen Blank

Goncalo Alves Pen Blank Goncalo Alves has medium brown heartwood with a reddish cast, interspersed with irregular bands of dark brown and black. Its coloring tends to darken over time. Despite its high density, Goncalo Alves is quite easy to work with. The wood resists moisture absorption, so gluing can be difficult, but the wood finishes beautifully.
