JOAT You can actually spalt wood yourself. Too many choices of articles, so just posted the search. Not tried any of it myself, so can't tell how it does, but have read others saying you can get some fantastic results, and some bummers. I figure it's worth a shot.

Not to worry. After you paint them no one will notice.

Those would make nice looking pens/pencils. I've turned a few from different spalted species.

Wood Chip Sweet! Those pieces that are book-matched you might consider turning into make a matched pen/pencil set. Please post the results.

yes... i was thinking of doing a box with some other teak penblanks i had, stacking /joining them. but i really love the contrast between pieces like this, and a solid low-no grain wood.
