Red sandalwood is mainly produced in the southern part of India. "The fresh cut plane of heartwood is orange and turns to dark purple or blackish purple with age, often having light-coloured and purplish black stripes; scratches with heartwood are clearly visible and the water-leach liquor of wood shavings or chips has fluorescence. The heartwood can be distinctly distinguished from the sap wood ... The fibre wall is thick and full of red gum and pterocarpine; no fragrance or very slight fragrance; the grains are interlocked, and some are partially curly; the wood is extremely heavy with an air-dry density of 1.05 - 1.26g/cm3”.
