ITANNIN

botanical name unknown

This wood was sold to me under the common name itannin, but I cannot find that name in any reference and I have no clue what species it is. The only other image I could find was copied from this page, so no help there.

my samples:
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting ("soft white" at 2700K)
colors will vary under other lighting conditions

end grain of the pices directly above


end grain closeups of the pieces directly above --- the pics are too gray, should be more brown


END GRAIN UPDATE from directly above


both sides of a plank with the first pic showing an untouched side with age patina and the second pic showing a freshly cut face with a pinkish tint.
