It is definitely Jatoba. Anyone can look at photos online until they’re blue in the face, and come up with many different ideas. I was pretty sure right away when I saw your pics, but when I looked at the stock of Jatoba lumber in our store I became dead certain. An earlier poster was right about the wood becoming darker with oxidation. This would make it difficult to determine by simply looking at various online photos. I work with it regularly, and have never heard of any cases of the wood being toxic. You can find more info about it on my company’s website. (or if you need to get more)

I hope that helps!
