Common names: Kiaat, Muninga
Scientific name(s): Petrocarpus angolensis
Kiaat is a species of timber only found in Southern and Central Africa. Prized for its remarkable stability as a species, as well as its striking appearance due to a great variation of colors appearing in the heartwood, from reddish brown to black with sharply contrasting white sapwood. These features combined with its good width profile ranging from 80cm to 1.10mt make it the perfect species for your next live-edge table.
