I have no idea what the wood if but it looks beautiful. Maybe make some pens of something with it?? How heavy is it?

I would/ might make a couple pens out of a piece of it , but I don't want it to lose that figure on a small turning.

As Johan suggested, you might take a plane with a very sharp blade to the end grain to sever the fibers cleanly. Then take a very close, sharp picture with good lighting (try positioning the light 45 degrees from a perpendicular to the surface), and post a largish picture of it. This may allow someone who’s into wood ID, to narrow it down to a particular species.

If someone really does want a piece of it I got 2 pieces I'd be more than willing to cut up one of them into smaller peices and send em out if you want to cover the shipping if someone has an idea for a piece of it. just message me.
