Barauna is an excellent specie at and around the water level. Since the ancient Jesuit’ churches, barauna is used in Bolivia as construction supports under these churches. After a couple of hundred years, the barauna posts are still in excellent condition and none of these ancients churches needs to be even renovated.

 

ROQUE VALENTE’ experience is that most clients seem to sell it as an alternative for wider known (African) Azobé. However, Azobé might be better known, its availability compared to Barauna is the difference. If you need some vast quantities with a reliable lead time of delivery, then you definitely better opt for ROQUE VALENTE’s Barauna. The same is true for Brazilian competitor Angelim Vermelho nowadays. Furthermore, Barauna is also cheaper
