Purpleheart: (Peltogyne spp) Grown in both Central and South American forests, Purpleheart is well known and admired for its deep purple color. This wood is dense, hard and brittle, with a coarse texture, so it does not polish particularly well. It can be a challenge to work with, but finishes very nicely and has broad appeal.
Like may other brightly colored tropical woods, Purpleheart will slowly lose its bright color and turn to a rich-brown hue over time. This may slowed somewhat by applying a finish and keeping it away from UV rays. Availability of this wood varies so call us if you do not see it our catalog.
