    Coromandelwoodor Calamanderwood
    is a valuable wood fromIndia,Sri Lankaand South East Asia. It is of a hazel-brown color, with black stripes (or the other way about), very heavy and hard. It is also known asMacassarEbonyorvariegated ebonyand is closely related to genuineebony, but is obtained from different species in the same genus; one of these isDiospyrosquaesitaThwaites, from Sri Lanka. The nameCalamandercomes from the localsinhalesename, 'kalu-medhiriya', which means dark chamber; referring to the characteristic ebony black wood.
     
    Coromandelwood has been logged to extinction over the last 2 to 3 hundred years and is no longer available for new work in any quantity. Furniture incoromandelis so expensive and so well looked after that even recycling it is an unlikely source. A substitute,MacassarEbony, has similar characteristics and to the untrained eye is nearly the same but it lacks the depth ofcolourseen in genuineCoromandel.
