Purpleheart, best known for its amazing grain pattern and unique colour that can rarely be found in other wood types, is native to the territory between Mexico and Brazil.
While renowned for its often deep, rich purple hues, Purpleheart is actually one of the toughest woods in the world. It is considered one of the stiffest, hardest woods — boasting an impressive strength-to-weight ratio. It is also extremely water resistant, which, combined with its toughness, has seen it frequently being used in outdoor decking and even as truckbed flooring. Its texture ranges from fine to medium, and it has a nice natural lustre that emerges when finely sanded.
