African Mahogany comes from the Khaya tree native to tropical Africa and Madagascar. Like most mahoganies, it will darken with age and has noticeable shimmering chatoyance. The figure and grain in African Mahogany boards is exceptional. Though this species tends not to be as figured on the dice scale, the grain and chatoyance do carry over well and give the dice a distinctive sparkle.
NOTE: Mahogany woods darken with age. When you receive your dice they will likely be a manila to light brown color.
