Afzelia Burl

Afzelia burl comes to us from Southeast Asia.  Since about 2005, it has become increasingly difficult to get, especially in the burl form.  High figure burl in Afzelia is now rare.  It is normal for it to have small bark inclusions, which can easily be hardened by adding thin superglue. This is now an extremely rare burl. Import of new pieces is almost non-existent and most pieces have almost no figure. Highly figured afzelia burl is much rarer even then amboyna burl now and pieces with good figure are generally from old private collections rather then recent import.

Click the photo for view of side 2. Actual pieces shown, order below. These pieces are completely dried. A very rare burl that wasn't easy to get 10 years ago, now it is next to impossible. Has always been more rare then amboyna burl because afzelia burl usually has much less figure then amboyna. Some of these are the best Afzelia can be for figure/color. F and G2 have some of the finest (tiny) figure I have ever seen in afzelia. F and G 2 look lighter because they were cut more recently. They will darken to a yellowish orange, but not quite as dark as the orange ones shown (Ato E). Great quality, super rare!
