Here in Oregon, we see a fair number of custom stocks made out of myrtlewood. The color and grain can be absolutely spectacular.
Myrtlewood trees grow down on our coastline and I've been told that the only places that myrtlewood occurs is here and the Holy Land. I saw some mrytlwood trees on our recent looong pilgrimage to Israel. Whether it grows elsewhere, I cannot say.
Here is a photo of a decent piece of myrtlewood.
