the REST of the pictures on this page will give you a better overall feel for this wood
mansonia / Mansonia altissima
1.5" x 1.5" flat cut, 3" x 3" quartersawn, 1" x 1" end grain, and a 1/4" x 1/4" end grain closeup.
Diffuse porous with randomly distributed medium pores, frequent radial pore multiples. sometimes as long as 5 but usually 2 or 3, rays thin and hard to see even at 10X, diffuse-in-aggregates parenchyma is present but hard to see even at 10X. Pore density drops off slightly in the latewood, sometimes making the wood look semi diffuse porous. Growth rings easily discernable due to darkening tissue color in the latewood.
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting ("soft white" at 2700K)
colors will vary under other lighting conditions
