This will likely tell you more than you wish to know about Walnut http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walnut There are a lot of subspecies

And dont mix and match them within the same project. American black walnut will have a color like a light milk chocolate bar when under a clearcoat. Claro will look more like a dark chocolate bar. Peruivian will be different, still, mostly showing up in grain as well as color. Stick with the same species on the project.
