Snakewood is so called for its characteristic snakeskin patterns. Snakewood wood is extremely dense, and has a pronounced blunting effect on tools. Snakewood also tends to be quite brittle and can splinter easily while being worked. Snakewood turns well and finishes to a high polish.
As a rare and small tree, prices for surfaced and milled Snakewood that display the characteristic snakeskin pattern are perhaps the most expensive of any exotic lumber worldwide in terms of per-boardfoot cost.

||Snakewood has been reported as a skin and respiratory irritant.
