Purpleheart Timber

Product Description

Purpleheart is an extremely dense and very strong Central-South American hardwood.
The heartwood is a deep purple-violet colour when freshly cut, maturing to dark brown, silvering off with age.
The original colour is restored when re-cut. Straight grained, but often irregular, wavy and sometimes interlocked producing a pleasing striped figure on quartered surfaces. Texture is moderate to fine and has a high strength quality.
Used for many years by NZ architects as a hard durable decking wood.
