Botanical Name:

Aspidosperma polyneuren


Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina

Also known as: 

Peroba, Peroba Rosa, amargoso, guatambu-amarelo, ibirá-ró-mí, marela, paroba-amargosa      

When freshly sanded and finished this floor will appear very pink with light yellow streaks running like flames through the length of the boards.  With time the pink will change to an orangey yellow to give an overall amber floor. Amberwood's grain is iridescent, extremely fine and even. It is a very hard and good wearing wood.
