African Ebony: Diosporos crassiflora Famous for its use through the ages as a decorative material and trade commodity, African Ebony makes stunningly beautiful beads. We use the genuine Ebony wood from Cameroon which has that intense midnight black rather than the various similar species that tend to have inferior color. Diamond shaped beads. Premium quality craftsmanship, polished to a brilliant luster. Size: 10 x 10mm beads. Normally only available made-to-order, this piece is ready to ship!
