Yellowheart is a neo-satine wood whose color can range from pale yellow to bright yellow to varying shades of gold. Sapwood is lighter and pale, but not always easily discerned from pale-colored heartwood. Its grains are typically straight, but can also by wavy and/or interlocked. Its typically fine (sometimes medium or in between), consistent texture takes on a luxurious look, revealing a deep natural luster, when sanded.

As far as working characteristics are concerned, Yellowheart is generally very cooperative for a fairly dense and durable wood. (Although sharp blades may be necessary with some interlocked-grain boards.) It glues and finishes very well. The wood holds its color well: slowly darkening, to a degree, as it ages, often giving it an even more striking appearance.

Sustainability: Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common Uses: Flooring / parquee flooring, furniture, cabinetry, millwork, veneer, musical instruments (guitars, in particular), inlay, boatbuilding, handles / stocks, trim, accents, carvings and turnings.

Comments: Yellowheart is an important commercial lumber in Brazil. Although US importation has been sproadic, so has its demand. Thus, Yellowheart remains a moderately priced, readily available option for wood craftsmen.

Premium-grade examples have a dramatically figured, two-toned satiny look, with a deep chatoyance. Although it is not considered to be one, such premium-grade specimens can look as luxurious and velvety as of the true satine woods
