Characteristics of a rare slab

Among all the solid wood boards, the one with the most rare value is the one with “MOKU” (a complex pattern that rarely appears).This is a slab with a complicated wood grain that appears in different patterns and colors depending on the direction you look at it, and these rarely appear.
This does not appear on every slab. For this reason, the appearance and proportion of these items further increase the rarity value of the slab.
