Hello Markanthonylo –

I think you are right about this tree being a Diospyros, but I don’t think it is D. blankoi because of the leaf shape.  D. blankoi has leaves which are pointed at the apex, and yours are rounded.  Because of this your tree looks to me like Diospyros ferrea.  A species which makes a fine bonsai subject.
