Lancewood generally consists mostly of sapwood which is a pale yellow and the heartwood is a darker golden yellow color. The grain is straight and it has a very fine even texture. The wood gives off a natural lustre. The end grain is diffuse-porous. Lancewood is rated as non-durable in regards to decay. The wood is good to work with but does have a high cutting resistance and blunting effect. It turns superbly.
