It is not osage. I also queried in the turners newsgroup.
The best response I got from one wood turner is that it
is a new wood out of peru.
It is orange with nice grain patterns. They had a couple small
turned items out of it that seemed to have kept its color sofar
but only time will tell.
Much of their stock was cracking. One large
plank still had the pith in it and it looked nice until I turned
it over and saw some large checks running the length of the board.
