Purpleheart, Bois violet (F) (Peltogyne venosa) comes from Mexico, Surinam and British Guyana. Freshly cut its colour is dull brown, but turns rapidly into a vivid purple after exposition to air and light. It has little and normally straight figure, even texture, is very hard and heavy and works very well. This wood should be sealed to protect its unique colour! The wood has been moistened for realistic colours.Pictures show samples, actual pieces may differ!
