Mopane is the rarest I’ve worked

The mopane or mopani tree grows in hot, dry, low-lying areas, 200 to 1,150 metres in elevation, in the far

northern parts of southern Africa, into South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, Angola

and Malawi.

Very dense and heavy but polishes up nicely
