Katalox Lumber by the Piece Sometimes called Mexican Ebony because of its extreme density and deepbrown color, Katalox has become known as one of the stiffest and strongest woods available. The heartwood is a rich, dark brown with notes of violet and purple, and darkens to nearly black with age. The creamy-white sapwood complements the darker heartwood nicely. It is often used as a substitute forebony in stringed instruments. Because of its density, Katalox is difficult to work,but the same qualities make it excellent for turning.
