Bloodwood : HC : South America

This is a beautiful wood from South America and is also known as Cardinalwood or Satine. It is one of the woods that seems to have an inner glow to it in direct sunlight. It is a very hard and color stable wood. The color will remain rich and vibrant for many years.

It grows primarily in French Guiana, Brazil, Peru, Panama and Venezuela to a height of over 100 feet and a diameter of 30 to 40 feet.   

The sapwood is generally yellowish-white and has a sharp demarcation with the heartwood which is predominately rich red hues from orange/red to crimson with occasional faint strands of yellows. Most of our bloodwood is a crimson red.

Although the tree diameter is large, it is unusual to see heartwood lumber wider than 12 inches. 

The rich color also makes a beautiful Wallcross.  The classic hymn , "Take My Life and Let it Be" written the the mid-1800's  by Frances Havergal states so clearly:

   "Precious, precious blood of Jesus, Shed on Calvary" ...

  "though thy sins are like crimson, Deep in scarlet glow, 
  Jesus' precious blood can make them white as snow. "
