Lignum Vitae is the world's hardest and densest wood. That is why folks call it "ironwood." But any wood with a reputation for hardness can be called ironwood. Ironwoods in this store include:
  • Lignum Vitae (Guaiacum officinale)
  • Michigan Ironwood (Not sure of the species, but it probably grows near the town of Ironwood, Michigan.)
  • Verawood, aka Argentine lignum vitae (Bulnesia sarmientoi/Arborea)
See specific wood for tone characteristics.
