Sapwood often makes for great contrast!
Be aware of some vendors claims of dry wood, it seems to be a very common claim for many woods we have tested to be completely wet after we buy a piece to verify claims of dryness. Our pen blanks are always dry, but other pieces are marked on the item if it is truly dry (below 12% moisture). This wood can be a lot of trouble to dry in thicknesses over 1".
