Framiré has a yellow to light yellow-brown colour. Sometimes the heart has a somewhat darker tint. Ordinarily, there is little or no difference between the heartwood and the sapwood, which is 25-50 mm thick. The wood contains a yellow pigment, which can mark materials it comes into contact with if wet.
