Sapele wood is an hardwood from Africa that is akin to African Mahogany. It’s known for its straight lines to make great timber for woodworking in homes.
This beautiful piece of Sapele is what is known as Ribbon Sapele due to the chatoyance that can be seen when the bowl is seen under different lighting conditions. The “ribbons” shimmer in the light.
