About Amboyna Burl: Pterocarpus indicus Amboyna may also be called: Kiabooca or Angsana. Originally emanating from the Island of Amboyna, it is also from Borneo and other South East Asian countries. The name Kiabooca means twisted wood which refers to the burls that are produced. Once available in quantity in the Empire period from 1804 through 1815. Used primarily for furniture. Amboyna has become a rarity that is very scarce and is even difficult to obtain in veneer form in America. The wood is dense and course making it difficult to work and finish. Despite the shortcomings of the workability of this species it turns satisfactorily and takes a nice high polish. Amboyna is The World's most popular and sought after burl thus leading to a short supply. Amboyna wood is a beautiful burr wood, commonly used for small items and jewellery. Many populations of Pterocarpus indicus are seriously threatened. It is extinct in Vietnam and possibly in Sri Lanka and Peninsular Malaysia.Please see all photos using the zoom function available, as they constitute the item description.International GSP postage can be combined.
