It has a reddish-brown core and a sharply delimited narrow white or slightly yellowish sapwood, well-visible annual layers with a clear boundary between early and late wood. The texture of larch is determined on longitudinal sections by the width of annual layers, the difference in the color of late and early wood, as well as the core and sapwood. The texture on tangential sections is especially rich and beautiful. The wood is slightly knotted. When using protective coatings, products made of it practically do not change their humidity during operation, therefore, larch is used for parquet and parquet boards. The parquet has a golden hue, which gives the interior a "sunshine" and spaciousness.
In terms of basic mechanical loads, it is similar to ash wood, but inferior to it in impact strength, hardness and especially in splitting resistance.

The core wood has a purplish-brown color and is distinguished by a beautiful alternation of light and dark stripes. Sapwood sharply differs in color from sound wood. Wood has a subtle aroma. The fibers are intertwined and the radial cut gives a striped pattern. The texture is uniform and large. A high-quality, high-quality parquet floor is produced from rosewood, which is considered the most diverse in the number of colors in its wood.
