Purple ball bullet TAMBOTI  (Spyrostachus africana)

Grows in South / South East Africa, South African Lowveld and Swaziland.
The wood is hard, heavy, durable and close – grained.
The sapwood is creamy white and the heartwood is dark brown with darker longitudinal streaks that create beautiful markings. Rich brown with a satin – like lustre.
It is inclined to be oily and, when freshly worked, has a distinctive sweetish smell. Care should be taken when working with Tamboti – the milky latex from the freshly cut tree is very poisonous and causes extreme irritation to sensitive skin and can damage the eyes. When working care should be taken to keep sawdust out of the eyes. This wood is not suitable for fuel as the smoke will cause headaches and nausea.
Africans are warned against this tree from an early age, their fear sometimes almost amounting to taboo which prevents them from damaging any living specimens.
Figure mottled and banded, sometimes with visible growth increments. It is a hard wood, lustrous and with a powerful, persistent, and pleasant scent sweeter than that of sandalwood. This pleasant odor will last a long time after the wood is cut. A piece of furniture made of it can scent a large room for a long time.
Because of its limited quantities, and the defectiveness of the tree, it is a rare wood and therefore sought for small fancy articles and high grade furniture.
Store with care and well sealed to prevent cracking.
Weighs 75-84 lbs. per cubic foot.
