If it is,oily, probably one of the central/south american species.

I bandsaw alonf major cracks and plan n,using epoxy fillers. I use thin epoxy sold for rot repair and add black epoxy colorant. Thin viscosity amd slow set time get good penetration. Risk is these epoxys will leak through tape joints so plastic bags are good to contain messes.

Cut off scraps of desert ironwood sell for $10 a pound in Tucson.
