Different type of wood

At least to me it is different. This is some firewood that I was given about two years ago. Was sitting out by the grill, cooking a few burgers and looked over at the wood pile, hmmmm.

Grabbed this chunk and ran it through the miter saw to see what was inside the old gray stuff on the outside.

I have NO IDEA what this wood is, other than dense, heavy (same thing), very tough, and in my opinion, kinda pretty.
