However, on sight, I would have to guess that 1) is a Guinea Lenke shell (although I have some Hare and Beng that look very similar, 2) is from Mali and the shell is most likely a lighter than normal colored Gele (typically Gele of this quality would be darker purple), although I just assembles a red Lenke which looks very similar, 3) most likely Ivory Coast Iroko. The ultimate test would be to really see the grain as well as smell the shells. Definitely a fun test, Duga. I'll try to post some of mine after the new year ...

It's interesting though to see how huge the variation in appearance of the same wood can be. I've seen Hare from a very pale blond with little grain to very dark brown with almost black grain. And your Guinea Lenke shell looks more brown than red.
