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 --- colors will vary under other lighting conditions
two turning sticks
end grain of the pices directly above
end grain closeups of the pieces directly above --- the pics are too gray, should be more brown
