This set contains Color. Color is a term used for stain that naturally occurs in the tree either while living/standing or once a tree as been felled and is laying on the ground. If you are a beginner in the luthier world, colored wood will not sand out white and colored wood will have an effect on the dyes you use or finished color choices.

This set contains Knots and Mineral.
Knots/Pin Knots are tiny limbs that stretch out from the trees heartwood attempting to create a new limb. These knots regardless of size generally travel from or near the center of the tree out toward the outer sapwood and bark. Many times pin knots can also become included.
Mineral Streaks are caused both naturally and unnaturally. Natural mineral streaks are caused by excessive mineral deposits or groupings in an area of the tree. Unnatural mineral streaks are caused by a boring insect which intentionally bores into the tree with the purpose of eating or feeding on the trees nutrients and by doing so the bored or tunnel portion semi-rots along with insect excrement causing a visible mark dramatically different in color.
