DIVIDIVI, the commercial name for the astringent pods of Ccrsalpinia coriaria, a leguminous shrub of the sub-order Ccesalpiniece, which grows in low marshy tracts in the We:3t Indies and the north of South America. The plant is between 20 and 30 feet in height, and bears white flowers. The pods are flattened, and curl up in drying ; they are about inch broad, from 2 to 3 inches long? and of a rich brown colour. Dividivi was first brought to Europe from Caracas in 176S. Its value in the manufac-ture of leather is due to the large amount of tannin 2ontained in the y-ellow resinous matter exterior to the seed husks. It may be employed in dyeing as a substitute for galls or sumach. Maracaibo, Rio Hacha, and Sabanilla are the ports from which it is principally shipped.
