Figured Brazilian Amarynth, Vibrant Color

Amarynth or Purpleheart is a brilliantly colored hardwood from South America that is very popular for its naturally deep violet purple color. The color is a pale brown when freshly cut, darkening to deep violet purple with UV exposure in a few days. Occasionally the trees produce either fiddleback or a ropey mottled curl from interlocked grain.Trees are normally large with 70-100' heights and 2-3' diameters. Trunks are long and free of limbs with a nice canopy of limbs only at the top of the tree.The wood has coarse, open grain and is dense and durable.
