Peltogyne

from 20.00

Otherwise known as Purpleheart, is an extremely dense and water-resistant wood.  It is ranked one of the hardest and stiffest of the woods in the world. It's so durable that it's been used for some of the most demanding applications, such as sailboat decking.  The trees themselves are prized for their beautiful heartwood which, when cut, quickly turns from a light brown to a rich purple color.  Exposure to sunlight light slowly darkens the wood to a brown color with a slight hue of the original purple. The longer the wood is exposed to UV lights (e.g. sunlight), the color of purple slowly changes from a light purple to a subtle chocolate color.
