Question What type of driftwood is this?

Hello! My sis bought a driftwood for me from her Hong Kong trip (renowned goldfish market). Its been sitting in my tank for almost a year now and it smells like topsoil :I

What type of DW is this? Is it cottonwood or some other soft wood?

Thanks!

Looks similar to "rosewood" sold in most pet stores for aquarium use or for use in bird cages.

I use it on a regular basis and it holds up well.

Googled it, and it does seem to resemble rosewood. Thanks
