     African Mahogany veneer is a product of West Tropical Africa and is closely related to other species, most notable being Sapele. The heartwood color can vary across the color spectrum from a lighter shade of pink to a deep reddish-brown that can feature dark streaks throughout. The grain is straight to interlocked with a moderate to coarse texture. Although this wood has great natural luster it isn't simply because of the wood but, rather a phenomena known a Chatoyancy which can be witnessed in this video courtesy of the Wood Database website(Chatoyancy).
