Any idea what hub this is? Purple anodized

Any idea what this might be? It feels really nice and it has smooth bearing action.
Came on an odd set of wheels I broke down.

No markings that I can see but a sticker could have been on it.

I'm no fancy hub expert, but it looks like what I remember the Ringle hubs of yore looking like.

Yeah, looks the same, but nice and purple. I did have two sets of Sun Ringle rims in with the bunch of stuff I bought.
Worth anything? I have a Shimano XT front hub that I fugured would be a better hub to build on except for the sweet bling factor.
