    Amaranth is a hard, commercially very important wood. It comes from Central and South America, where it occurs from Mexico to southern Brazil, with most species found in the Amazon basin. The core wood has a light brown color after processing, when exposed to light, the color gradually changes to purple. The fibers are usually straight, but they can also be slightly wavy to alternately spiral. The texture is medium-fine, even, with a natural sheen. Thanks to its unusual and unique color, this purple wood is used for furniture and decorative items where an unconventional color appearance is required.


    Amaranth tropical wood is characterized by high hardness, strength and wear resistance. It is very durable against weather conditions, wood-destroying fungi and insects. It dries well, with minimal cracking and deformation. The wood is moderately dimensionally stable and has high compressive strength.


    Amaranth is a hard wood, but it is easy to machine by hand and machine. It is well planed, sanded, allowed to smooth into a silk surface, it can also be polished. Hard core wood is poorly impregnated. It is recommended to pre-drill holes when connecting with nails or screws. The numbness of the tools is usually mild. Alcohol-based finishes remove the purple color. When heating wood with blunt tools or high machining speeds, the wood can emit a sticky and very dense rubber mass that clogs the tools and paints the surfaces to be dark purple.


    Wood can be used indoors and outdoors, for its unique color appearance is used mainly for furniture, floors, design elements, decorative items, jewelry, souvenirs.
