i think a redheart or a jatoba would be better for the red than purpleheart.

ebony for black.

a maple or best case holly is as close i think you will get to a white

for green you could use a green streak of poplar. just experiment with which finish gets it the greenest, (i.e. shellac, wb poly, poly, danish oil, garnet shellac)

for a blue i’m stuck? can’t wait to see what everyone else says.
