Red Narra is the same tree from which Amboyna burl comes. It grows in Southeast Asia in such countries as Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and Burma. The picture above is of curl or “beeswing” figure in the heartwood. At the bottom of the page, Amboyna part burl is listed, since they are different parts of the same tree. Color of either can vary from reddish tan like the above photo to an orangey deep red in some instances. The figure in the beeswing is quite chatoyant and really catches the light. Note: Chatoyant means that the appearance changes when the piece is held at different angles to the light . We need moving pictures to really show you what it looks like! Note: the vast majority (at least 70%) of each gg piece will have very nice figure. There may be some areas with less/none or different figure, which is the nature of this type of wood. SIZES ARE IN INCHES
unless specified otherwise.
🪵 Good to know
Red Narra (figured)
BEESWING NARRA is nearly impossible to find. Basically it has been gone from the market for around 8-10 years. It took us years to collect the pieces offered below . It is now sold as “amboyna burl” which it is not. However it is figured wood from the same tree. We do pay the same price as for amboyna burl for the material though (if we can find any) . . .
