purpleheart (wood) (hardwood, <wood by composition or origin>, ... Materials (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Strong, elastic purplish wood derived from several species of the genus Peltogyne. The heartwood is brown when freshly cut becoming deep purple upon exposure to air, eventually turning to a dark brown with sharply demarcated off-white sapwood. Has a fine, uniform texture and grain that is straight or slightly roey. The durable, shock-resistant wood is sometimes used for carving and for vehicle construction. Also used widely in furniture-making, marquetry, veneers, flooring, etc.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 數種紫心蘇木屬樹木的木材,為強度高且具彈性的紫色木材,質地細緻均勻,紋理則為筆直或者略微交錯。紫心木在剛砍伐下來的時候是棕色的,暴露在空氣中會變成深紫色,最後轉變為深棕色,其邊材界線分明、白色中略帶灰黃。這種耐久性佳又耐震的木材有時用做雕刻材料和建造交通工具,也廣泛地被用在家具製造、裝飾家具用的鑲嵌細工、製造表面飾板及地板材料等用途上。 
Dutch ..... Een sterke, duurzame, elastische, purperachtige houtsoort die met name wordt gebruikt voor decoratief fineerwerk en wordt verkregen van diverse tropische Amerikaanse bomen (een genus van 23 typen bloeiende planten in de familie van de Fabaceae). Het hout aan de binnenkant is bruin wanneer het pas is gekapt, maar wordt donkerpurper bij blootstelling aan de lucht, en uiteindelijk donkerbruin met scherp afgetekend gebroken wit hout langs de buitenste rand. 
Spanish ..... Madera resistente, durable y elástica de color púrpura utilizada en particular en enchapados elegantes.
