Indian Ebony is less plentiful than West African Ebony and so you are less likely to find it in the market place, though it is commonly used for violin and other bowed instrument fittings. The wood is about 8% lower in weight than African Ebony, but has equal (excellent) compression strength and is similarly stable. We are assured of responsible harvest practices with third party oversight. Because we have not carried it long, we are not certain that the supply of this fine wood will be steady in the future.
