Black Rope Celtic Knot pen and help ID the insert material

A luthier friend gave me a pile of scrap wood which included some odd looking laminate. I made a Celtic knot blank for my son to turn with some of the black and white laminate. It turned out to be a very striking effect and would love to find more. Anyone know what this is called and where to get it?

Gary, I don't know what it is but you're right it is striking! Very nice job on the pen.

Wow ... your son turned a great pen

I've no idea what the laminate is, but if you ever find out please post the information here, I'd like to try that when (if) I get as far as Celtic knot pens.

A knowledgeable person on the IAP website had the answer, it's called Colorply by Brookside Veneers.
Possibly a pattern called Eclipse.
