There are very expensive goods in this world which middle class and poor people cannot purchase. Now today we are going to tell you about the world's most expensive wood. Now you will say that sandalwood is called expensive, but the wood we are going to tell you about is more expensive than sandalwood. Well, the wood we're talking about is African Blackwood. This wood is counted among the most valuable materials on earth.
Now, when it comes to its price, one kilogram costs more than 8,000 pounds or more than 7 lakh rupees. Yes and with the price of this wood, you can easily buy a good luxury car. African Blackwood trees, however, are found in dry areas of Africa and north-eastern parts of South Africa from Senegal east to Eritrea. The height of these trees is about 25-40 feet and they are mostly found in dry places.
Also, tell you that African Blackwood takes 60 years to get ready properly. However, illegal smuggling of such expensive items is a major case and smugglers lure it into premature cutting, making these trees much rarer. According to some reports, African Blackwood wood is smuggled into Kenya, Tanzania, etc. However, African Blackwood wood is used to make musical instruments like the clarinet, flute, and guitar.
