Antique Pepper Grinder featuring Curly Jarrah.
Jarrah [Eucalyptus marginata] is one of the most common species of Eucalyptus tree in the southwest of Western Australia. The tree and the wood are usually referred to by the Aboriginal name jarrah. Because of the similar appearance of worked jarrah timber to the Honduras mahogany, jarrah was once called Swan River mahogany after the river system that runs through Perth.
A small percentage of Jarrah trees develop a curly grain as a response to growth stresses. This produces a timber with a highly attractive ripple pattern.
