Turning Ipe

>Does anyone have any experience turning Ipe. I have the opportunity of getting some cutoffs 2x2 and 2x6 from a contractor. It is very heavy. I just wondered what it will do to my tools, and how it will turn up. Is it pretty, etc. Any other considerations as to it's toxicity or anything else?

Thanks
RP
