    No longer purple

    I bought one of these recently (June 2018). When it arrived I sliced an edge to see what was inside. I found it to be already browned and no longer purple. I hoped it was just the outer edges, so I sliced it down the middle and found that it was brown through and through. Neither sanding nor wiping with water or oil did anything to refresh the color. I have other pieces of Purple Heart that are over 10 years old and are still brightly purple colored, so I know what it can look like. This was not what I was hoping for and will be useless for my projects.
