Diospyros ebenum (species) (Diospyros (genus), Ebenaceae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Species of ebony tree found in abundance throughout the flat country west of Trincomalee in Sri Lanka. The tree is distinguished by the width of its trunk and its jet-black, charred-looking bark, beneath which the wood is pure white until the heart is reached. The heartwood excels in fineness and in the intensity of its dark color. Although the center of the tree alone is used, reduced logs 30 cm to almost 1 m (1 to 3 feet) in diameter can be obtained.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 黑檀樹種,大量遍生於斯里蘭卡亭可馬里市(Trincomalee)西部的平坦地區。特點為其樹幹寬度,以及烏黑而近乎焦黑的樹皮,樹皮至樹心為止的材色純白。上等心材,色澤純黑,結構極為細緻。即使只使用樹心的部分,削減後製出的原木直徑仍有30公分至幾乎1公尺寬(1至3呎)。 
Dutch ..... Ebbenboom die zeer veel voorkomt op het vlakke platteland in het westen van het district Trincomalee op Sri Lanka. Opvallende kenmerken zijn de dikke stam en gitzwarte schors (die verkoold lijkt). Het hout onder de schors is volledig wit tot de kern. Het kernhout is zeer fijn en heeft een intense donkere kleur. Hoewel men alleen het midden van de stam gebruikt, kan men er hout mee produceren van 30 tot 100 centimeter dik.
