This set contains Color, Inclusions, and Mineral.
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.
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.
Inclusions – Holes that have penetrated the wood that over time exposed to oxygen have darkened in color. Although rare inclusions can occur naturally as a form or irregular grain spacing, voids caused by heavy figure causing heavy grain disruption and ultimately small pockets that become infected and grow with the tree in depth over the years. Inclusions are also caused by an outside source. These are some of the causes of inclusions: Insect boring or tunneling, bird peck, tree knots or limbs that never materialize, and tree bruising caused by weather “windfall” penetration of the trees bark and outer sapwood.
