Plain Purpleheart is selected for its uniform color and overall quality, but curly or figured Purpleheart is selected for character and activity. The figured Purpleheart can range from a tight tiger stripe to a broad series of irregularly shaped areas of compressed grain that can look like spots on a leopard.
Purpleheart (Peltogyne spp.) Central and South America. Medium to hard wood with tight, fairly straight grain with moderate to coarse texture. Bright purple when cut, darkens to brownish purple with exposure. Purpleheart is a very strong wood, machines well with sharp tools.
