Brazilwood

Common name for several trees of the family Leguminosae (pulse family) whose wood yields a red dye. The dye has largely been replaced by synthetic dyes for fabrics, but it is still used in high-quality red inks. The bright red wood, which takes a high polish, is used in cabinet work and for making violin bows.

The East Indian redwood, or sapanwood (Caesalpinia sappan), was called “bresel wood” when it was first imported to Europe in the Middle Ages; Portuguese explorers used this name for a similar South American tree (C. echinata), from which the name Brazil for its native country purportedly derives.

Brazil woods are classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Rosales, family Leguminosae.

Caesalpinia echinata, the famous "Pau-brazil," is the source of the name of the country, Brazil, and is endemic to the Atlantic coastal forest.
The large tree was once highly valued for its timber and as a source of dye and was logged almost to extinction.
