African Black Limba: Heartwood color, Limba on the commercial market is reported to be either of two colors: uniformly cream, pale yellow, or grayish brown, sometimes with nearly black, irregular streaks which give the wood an attractive appearance. Sapwood and heartwood are not clearly differentiated. The tree is reported to attain 150 feet at maturity, with trunk diameters of 4 to 8 feet above broad plank-like buttresses. The tree develops boles that are often straight, well-developed, and clear of branches to about 90 feet. The tree is native to Africa.
Wenge Characteristics: Wenge is an exotic and imported hardwood with dark brown heartwood with very close, fine, almost black veins. The texture is coarse, and the grain is straight to slightly wavy. When freshly cut, the heartwood of Wenge is a yellow-brown color, but then in a few months, it darkens to a deep, uniform brown, almost black, with alternate layers of light and dark tissue, forming a decorative figure. The tree is Native to Tanzania's Southern regions, Mozambique, and the Congo region.
