Similarly to Teak, the bending and compression strength of Zebrano is strong. This timber species is reported to be fairly hard, very heavy, very dense, with good toughness and impact properties. Although it is strong, its uses usually do not require great strength.
The heartwood is a light golden-yellow or pale yellow-brown in color, with narrow-veining or streaks of dark brown to almost black. Zebrano exhibits a wide range of colour variation and as the name suggests, it gives a zebra-stripe appearance. This type of species is typically sold in a quartered selection to maximise the contrasting striping. With distinct brown/black lines alternating between a tan coloured background, Zebrano is primarily used for design accents.
