Mysterious wood concert uke

Can you guess what the wood used for the soundboard is? It isn't bookmatched unfortunately because I only found a single 2' by 4" thin sheet of it. It was so unusual I just had to use it, but I had to wait until I could apply the finish to see the true beauty of it revealed.
The rest is easy: plain maple, cherry, ebony, mahogany.
Just to prove to myself I could build a traditional-looking uke more or less by the book.
