Rosewood is an extremely valuable and rare wood, prized by sculptors, collectors and artists for the quality of its timber, craftsmanship and nostalgic cultural value across Asia, specially China. The tree is slow-growing, with a lifespan of several hundred years, and the rise in demand has brought numerous species of rosewood near commercial extinction.
