Elemental Hardwoods has expanded its exotic hardwood flooring line with the addition of Black Mesquite, a hard to source wood species known for its extreme stability, durability, distinctive character and grain patterns. Sourced sustainably from the high desert Chaco region of Northern Argentina and Paraguay, Black Mesquite is now available for adding warm, rustic flavor to home and office flooring applications.

John McGlocklin, owner and founder  of Elemental Hardwoods said, “Algarrobo, or Black Mesquite as it is commonly known, is the latest entry into the Elemental product line, a unique collection of exotic hardwoods.”

Dense, with a silky texture, wild grain and character, Black Mesquite possesses a range of lustrous brown and gray-brown colors that will darken some with age. Its extreme stability, rivaling the most stable woods on the planet, makes it not only highly workable, but also a top choice for glue or nail down applications, especially in difficult environments.
