It's not made of Jatoba is it? I've had to make some countertops out of that stuff, and it is hard, heavy, and comes from Brazil. Is a reddish colour to, sort of like the photos. I was thinking about making a pump out of it at one point, but after making the countertops decided that I don't want to see it every time I play, no matter how nice it looks.
