Unknown Burl

I got this hunk of burl from a friend. It was old, dry and dusty. It looks as though it may have had a shade of red in it at one time, but with age, the red seems to have taken on a darker hue. Anyone have a clue as to what it might be?

Neat piece. Perhaps red mallee burl from Australia?
