African Blackwood (Mpingo) is one of the most sought after wood species in the world. Only one cubic foot of this exotic material weighs 80 pounds. It is pest proof, water proof and fire proof. Known as "The Original Ebony", this wood was used by ancient Egyptians as utensils and instruments and was found in the tomb of King Tut. It is still the most coveted wood for instrument makers to this day.
The natural black color has not been painted or manipulated. This is a unique and individual piece. No two pieces are the same. This particular plate is made out of the mystical African Blackwood tree which came from Eastern Africa.
This beautiful plate can be given as an amazing housewarming gift or used to decorate ones home and will provide a distinguishing look to any living area or entryway.
