Purpleheart.. how to keep it purple?

Jeremy in LA
>Hi everyone. Can I please get a final answer on Purpleheart? I've only used it a little myself. My experience is that when I turn it, it starts brown, and after sitting in the shop for 10 or more minutes it begins the journey to bright purple. However, I put a piece out in the sun to do a test, and it turned brown (Haven't re-turned it yet to see what's underneath). Is it just UV that does the damage? The shop is "daylight" flourescent. So which is it - purple then brown? Or brown then purple?? :) Furthermore, what's best to keep it purple "forever"? Thanks in advance!!
