Rosewood is a hardwood found in the Phillipines. The soft, blush color is deceptive, this wood variety is so hard that it is often used in heavy construction for beams, joists, and poles. The proper name for Rosewood is Petersianthus quadrialatus, and it is also known as Toog, Phillipine Rosewood, Kapullan, and Magtalisai.
