Color: Dull grey to purplish-brown when first cut, quickly darkens to violet-purple when exposed to light, darkens over time with continued UV light exposure until it appears dark brown with a hint of purple
General Workability: Purpleheart is very hard, has a moderate blunting effect on cutters, and can be problematic to glue due to natural oils present in the wood. Purpleheart is a bit brittle and can split or crack if not pre-drilled when nailing or screwing. It finishes with a wonderful lustrous surface and is excellent for woodturning.
