What is Ebony?
     Eze 27:15. A black, heavy, and very hard wood, which was brought to ancient Tyre from India. It is susceptible of a fine polish, and is used for musical instruments and ornamental work. Ebony is the heart-wood of a tree (Diospyros ebenus) of the same genus with the persimmon of our warmer States, and, like that tree, bears an edible fruit.
