Quartersawn brazilian cherry/jatoba

Anybody know of a reliable source for this wood quartersawn. I have seen it in lots of places flatsawn and quartersawn flooring. I finished ripping an 8/4 flatsawn board into 4 table legs, and the center cut showed iridescent rays kind of like QS black cherry with dark grain lines. When I checked the grain orientation I had cut that edge perpendicular to the rings. I sure would like to try some larger than a 1-3/8" leg in another project.
