Goncalo Alves is native to South America and ranges in color from light to deep reddish-brown. It is very hard and naturally rot resistant.
Goncalo Alves is commonly referred to as “Tigerwood” or “Brazilian Tigerwood” among flooring dealers. The wood has superb stiffness, strength, hardness, and durability. However, density and other mechanical properties can vary widely depending on the growing site and source region. The name “Jobillo” is sometimes used to refer to higher grades of Goncalo Alves among woodturners
Full of positive, but not healing energy, Goncalo Alves seems best suited for divination.
