Microberlinia brazzavillensis

Leopard wood has an amazing flecked surface that is reminiscent of the spots of a leopard. Its color can range from reddish to brown and it is very hard. Due to its cost it is usually only used as a decorative wood, which is why we only have it available for inlays and accents.
