Amara Ebony Wood Veneer

Amara Ebony VeneerThis is a very prestigious veneer with the classic ebony striping. The key difference is that Amara ebony has a hint of pink or red in the lighter stripes and so it makes a great companion with other red and salmon colored veneers like cherry. Despite the difference in color, Amara is the same species as Macassar. It simply develops with a different color due to the soil and environmental conditions found on the Indonesian islands.

Tip from Joe

I've found that iPhones and iPads display reasonably accurate colors of our veneer photos.
Rendering variations on some computer monitors can cause our pictures to appear different from the actual veneer.
