Recently I've come across a couple of pieces of purpleheart that have what looks like bright white colored flecks and veins in the grain. I thought it was just surface debris that got embedded in the grain but when I turned the wood down it was still there. Has anybody seen this before? Are these actually mineral deposits or something that grows into the wood? I don't think I can use this wood because, even though the flecks are small, the white against the purple is really going to stand out after finishing and look bad. Ideas?
