Black limba is variation of the limba species with grey to black streaks running throughout it from the western coast of Africa. This species has a pale yellowish-brown heartwood with a slightly interlocking grain and a coarse texture.  Glues, turns, and finishes well, with a very slight blunting effect from a low silica content.  Black limba is commonly used for furniture, musical instruments, and wood turning projects, and is sometimes available as a veneered plywood sheet.  It features a Janka hardness of 670 and weighs 3.1 pounds per board foot.
