Morado

Machaerium acutifolium, Machaerium scleroxylon
Also known as |
Bolivian Rosewood|Pau Ferro
Morado Lumber @ Rare Woods USA

Morado is known by many names.  Pau Ferro, Bolivian Rosewood and Morado are the most common.  The wood earned its “… Rosewood” nicknames (by which it is commonly known) because its colors and density are similar.  It has a medium brown base typically augmented by black streaks or grain lines, and sometimes even purple, tan and golden secondary hues, and sometimes a purplish tint, overall. Although it can have varying grains, straight-grained pieces are generally very easy to work, and the wood turns smoothly and finishes well. It is considered quite durable, although it can be subject to insect attack.

Morado is a popular Brazilian Rosewood substitute and is thought to be about as similar in properties to rosewood as any non-Dalbergia-genus species possibly could be. Its grains are tighter than a typical rosewood specimen, and it is thought to have a more distinctly percussive tap-tone than that of Brazilian. Its tonal response is said to have tight lows, present mids and a clear, singing high end response.

Despite the comparisons, it should be noted that the (much more prevalent) Machaerium-genus species of Pau Ferro has less density, hardness and weight than an average rosewood.

Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
