Angelim Rajado

orginates from the forests that grow in the Amazon region of Brazil

Angelim Rajado


Angelim rajado is available in the forests of Precious Woods, located in the Amazon region of Brazil. The trunk attains a diameter of 60 cm wide, with a few centimeters wide sapwood.



The heartwood is orange yellow with darker (sometimes a little violet) stripes, like veins, which gives the timber a very decorative look. The sapwood is easy to distinguish because it doesn’t have these veins. The grain is straight, sometimes interlocked. The texture is medium coarse.
