Teak? Ipe?

I ended up with some hardwood which I think is teak. Very heavy with a awesome grain. Any idea of the value?
16 pieces at 5 3/8 x 32 and maybe 6 pieces at 6 x 36.

The first pic looks like it could be teak.
The grain in the second pic looks like mahogany.

The second picture is the top board in the top picture. I put some water on it to show the grain.

Pretty sure it is not Ipe, it almost has no grain, very very dense wood. Not sure about teak, never really handled it much. The second pic sure looks like mahogany to me.

if you do not find out on 2 cool, take a piece of it and go to clark hardwoods on 5 1/2 st. in houston some of those guys should be able to identify it and you can find out what it sells for from them

Thanks for the information. I’m leaning towards teak.
Picture of a fresh end grain cut and another picture of the face with some water splashed on it. Beautiful grain. Hard, heavy and dense.

Teak will also feel a little waxy before finish. It has high silica content in the grain and is pretty hard on cutting tools. Nevertheless, it is the first choice in a marine environment.
