Red Heart (Sickingia salvadorensis) also known as Chakte Kok, is a really unique wood, its colour cannot be compared to any other wood you know. The colour varies from fiery red to deep red, sometimes violet streaked, aging to deep crimson. The small tree is native to the east coast of Yucatan, Mexico up to southern Paraguay. Being of medium density it is nearly without any pores, has a medium to high hardness and is really very stable like teak. Works excetionally well, but should be protected by UV blockers against UV radiation by strong sunlight.
