Ebony

Ebony is often almost completely black with very little visible grain often with a subtle red/purple hue.
This wood is very expensive due to the slow-growing trees which can often be gnarly affecting the yield of straight workable wood.
Most ebonies are very dense making work with hand tools very difficult and can quickly clunt cutting tools. This density however offers an excellent finish on turned items.
