African blackwood (Black) Dalbergia melanoxylon (Mpingo): Among the densest and hardest woods in the world, African Blackwood is native to the central and southern African Savannah. Its durability and rich coloring makes it a popular choice for woodwind instruments. The African Blackwood's use dates back to the time of the ancient Egyptians, where it was used to create exquisite furniture for nobles.
