The sharply defined sapwood is yellowish or pale yellowish-white, often with a purplish tinge. Heartwood varies in color from rose to dark-brown with darker purple-black lines or deep purple with black lines. The darker streaks impart an attractive figure to the timber. The wood is fragrant, very hard and difficult to work because of its high density. It is used for plywood, agricultural, and musical instruments, skis, carvings, boats, floorings, etc.

The species is planted as a shade tree in coffee plantations and on roadsides.
