Is Ujinmu a ebony?

Wujinmu and ebony are two concepts. Wujinmu has no relationship with ebony. Wujinmu is commonly known as “zebra wood” and does not belong to mahogany. At present, Wujinmu furniture on the market is mainly composed of Wujinmu combined with other woods, as well as board and wood. If you encounter furniture that is said to be pure Wujinmu, you must be careful, because Wujinmu has a long production cycle and is rare, on the domestic market. Pure Wujinmu furniture is rare.

Ebony is hard, mostly brownish black, black red, gold, yellowish brown. The cut surface is smooth, the wood grain is fine, and the polished surface can reach the mirror surface brightness, and some ebony essences are similar to the red sandalwood. It never fades, does not decay, does not produce insects, and is an ideal material for making art and antique furniture. As ebony is a non-renewable resource, the amount of development is getting less and less, and some natural-looking ebony art is extremely collectible.
