Purpleheart

Purpleheart may be any of several species native to the rainforests of Central and South America.  

Purpleheart is very hard and dense, and the dust is toxic.  The wood will eventually age to a slightly purple-tinged brown color.  When cut, it's brown but soon (usually) changes to a striking purple color.  

Purpleheart can be problematic at times; a plank that looks great in the warehouse doesn't always show the same color after it's been milled.  We are occasionally disappointed when, after a lot of work to get purpleheart pieces to the nearly-completed stage, they stubbornly refuse go go purple.
