Spalted sweet gum bowl

This chunk of wood has been sitting around in the shop since '07 just waiting for a form. The interesting thing about the spalting is that the large spalt lines are green rather than black as I usually find. I'd read something somewhere about spalt coming in a number of colors but anything other than black is a first for me. About 10x3 and finished with home brew DO and buffed. Comments/critiques always welcome..Bill...

Looks nice to me. I would have guessed spalted hackberry for the wood though ?
