Purpleheart, also called Amaranth (scientific name: Peltogyne pubescens) is recognized for its unique color with purple and violet variances when freshly cut and which varies over time to an elegant purple/dark brown color. Coming from Central and South America, Amaranth is a very dense and durable wood. Amarante is mainly used for carpentry, DIY, turning, parquet floors. It is sometimes found paired with other wood species in order to find a marked effect of color contrast. Its high resistance makes it suitable even for heavy construction such as bridges, structures.
Rough boards comes directly from sawmills in various thicknesses, lengths and widths. The dimensions of each board vary depending on the lots received. Classification and measurement of wood are carried out according to industry standards (NHLA).
