Yellowheart is a hardwood species that grows almost exclusively in Brazil.  It has a pale to golden yellow heartwood with a good resistance to darkening over time.  Grain structure is straight with a uniform texture a good natural sheen.  Yellow heart machines, glues, and turns well, but has a blunting effect on edged cutters, and from time to time can be found with interlocking grain that can be somewhat difficult to prevent tearout.  It has been used for flooring, furniture, boat building, and as an accent piece in in craft and turned items.  Due to export restrictions on goods coming out of brazil, it has become increasingly hard to source, and when it is, it is generally cost prohibitive with regards to alternatives sourced elsewhere.  It has a janka hardness of 1800 and weighs 4.9 pounds per board foot.
