This is genuine Mahogany. There are many Mahoganies, but Honduran Mahogany is the real McCoy. This is the Mahogany by which all other are judged. Honduran Mahogany was widely exploited for its shimmering beauty and put on the CITES list and thus limiting its international export to certified sustainable resources. As a result Honduran Mahogany is now grown on many plantations throughout Central America.
NOTE: All mahogany woods darken with age.
