Is it soft and light weighted? If so, possibly yellow poplar.

Is it really dense? Does it sink in water? If so then I would also go with Argentine Lignum viatae, also called verawood. Here is a link verawood. Several photos look very similar to your piece

I have seen some green heart show lately, also. Looks similar to some of that which I just cut up.
