Amboyna Burl / Burr

These burls are found mainly on the Islands of Andaman and Nicobar in the Bay of BengalI off the coast of India.

The finest Amboyna Burl displays a golden sap outer ring with a light brown to reddish heart wood. As the two colours meet together they form a star burst pattern as in the above photo.
Amboyna Burl is the most expensive of all burrs due to its natural beauty and scarcity and is only used on the most prestigious projects.
