I was wondering if anyone has tried using
Gro Lux lights to bring out the color in some ***s like purpleheart
and to darken cherry.
Is this a possibility or just wishful thinking?
I've heard that just a few hours in sunlight will darken Cherry quite a
bit. Several "suntan" treatments over a few days ought to work.

You can stop the action by neutralizing with white vinegar or lemon
juice, and probaby should use one or the other when you're satisfied
Sunlight works too -- I helped a client put a computer monitor on a
brand new cherry table in a room with late afternoon sun several years
ago. A month later we moved everything to a new location and there was
a very distinct darkening of the area of the table not covered by the
base of the monitor.
Ammonia does a similar thing with oak, makes it dark like many antiques.
