Santalum spp.

Although there are at least 3 other totally unrelated woods that have sandlewood as all or part of one or more of their common names, I believe that the woods most properly called sandlewood are Santalum spp of the family Santalaceae and this includes at least Santalum album, Santalum freycinetianum, Santalum lanceolatum, and Santalum spicatum

my samples:
