Rosewood Chess Sets
All rosewoods are strong, heavy and polish well being suitable for a plethora of products to the point of becoming overused.
This popularity made some of the rosewood varieties difficult to find and required some action.
At the summit of the international wildlife trade in South Africa, CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) moved to protect the world’s most trafficked wild product by placing all 300 species of the rosewood tree under trade restrictions.
Rosewood defined: Rosewood refers to any of a number of richly hued timbers, often brownish with darker veining.
