Red Heart is growing in south Mexico. Directly after sawing the wood has a bright red color.

But how most of the strong coloured timber, also Red Heart looses the colour through UV irradiation and turns into pink. 

There are ways to slow dowm and prevent the UV irradiation with UV blockers.

 

Red Heart is an even grown and pretty dense wood, so it is nice to work with and surfaces can be brought out very well.
