Algum or Almug Trees
Hebrew - algum, algum tree, algum trees

(2 Chronicles 2:8; 2 Chronicles 9:10-11) (ALMUG 1 Kings 10:11). From the Arabic article al and mica, "red sandalwood," or Sanskrit valgu, in the Deccan valgum, "sandalwood." Brought from Ophir, and from Lebanon. Used for pillars and stairs in the Lord's house and the king's house, and for harps and psalteries. The cedars and firs came from Lebanon, but the almug trees from Ophir, an Arabian mart on the Red Sea, for eastern produce intended for Tyre and the W. The algums would come with the firs and cedars cut from Lebanon, and so all would be described collectively as "from Lebanon." The red sandalwood of China and India still used for making costly utensils. Else, the common sandalwood (Santalum album of Malabar coast), outside white and without odor, but within and near the root fragrant, fine grained, and employed still for fancy boxes and cabinets, and used as incense by the Chinese.
