Purpleheart (Exotic Hardwood)
When freshly cut the heartwood of Purpleheart is a dull greyish/purplish brown. Upon exposure the wood becomes a deeper eggplant purple. With further age and exposure to UV light, the wood becomes a dark brown with a hint of purple. This colour-shift can be slowed and minimised by using a UV inhibiting finish on the wood.
