PurpleHeart

(Peltogyne densiflora spruce)
PurpleHeart
PurpleHeart
Location:Purpleheart is found most common in the Amazon basin, and frequently grows in Colombia, Guyana, Surinam and Venezuela.
Tree:This tree grows 100 to 150 feet tall and has a trunk diameter or 2 - 4 feet.
The Wood:One of the most distinctive woods in the world, purpleheart is prized for its very unusual deep purple color. When freshly cut, this dense hardwood is light brown. Within minutes the surface turns an astonishing bright purple. Upon prolonged exposure to sunlight, the color gradually changes to a chocolate-purple color.
Use:This wood is often used in quality furniture, turning and for inlays


These are some of the items I have created with PurpleHeart. They are all unique one of a kind handcrafted items.
