Picked it up in an estate sale. Definitely dense, probably tropical.
Thanks for any ideas.

Robert, I think you nailed it. Thank you.

“Its unique coloring and durability are what make rosewood usage in instruments so interesting. The rings and patterns found inside the wood are incomparable, and these parts of the wood are usually reserved for making the neck of the guitar or the most visible parts of furniture”

the estate was from a guy who was a guitar maker. Lots of ebony fret board material as well.
