Not to be confused with the yellow-green wood of the tuliptree, found on the Eastern side of North America and also in some parts of China. (Aka tulip poplar or yellow poplar, even though the tree is not related to the poplars). Brazilian tulipwood is a different species altogether. Also called Pau rosa, Bois de rose, Pinkwood, Pau de fuso, Jacaranda rosa, it is a very colorful wood with irregular streaks of yellow, rose and red or violet on a cream to straw colored background.
This south american wood is described as hard and heavy, and takes a polish well. This pen is sanded and buffed super smooth, and is finished with boiled linseed oil and friction polish.
