Woohoo ... do I win anything for guessing right?

Over 30 years ago I bought some Purpleheart for a project at school that was that bright. Here it is now, it was used as an inlay with Red Oak.



As this was an oil finish, it oxidized quite a bit. A very deep purple that looks great in person in the sunlight.
