Wenge - Wenge (pronounced "wengay" IPA: /?w???e?/) wood (also known as palissandre d'Afrique/du Congo (African/Congolese rosewood), faux ebenier, dikela, mibotu, bokonge and awong) is a tropical timber of the wenge tree (Millettia laurentii) from Africa. The tree's heartwood is very dark and dense (specific gravity of 0.88) with a coarse grain and a pattern of nearly black grains separated by dark brown grains. Its sapwood is distinct, being pale yellow. The tree is native to the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon, Gabon, Tanzania, and Mozambique. The trees grow to a height of approximately 20 meters with a trunk of up to 1 meter in diameter. The wood's figure is very distinctive, with a strong partridge pattern; its appearance has gone in and out of fashion.
