I like the malachite, I think it stands out, more than most. Rod Neep has done some stunning Malachite, Azurite, Quartzite and Turquoise brushes recently, the latter two had gold veins running through them, although they also had high price tags.

I'd be concerned if the Tiger Eye pattern is too swirly or striped; maybe okay for Eddie Van Halen's guitar, but for a brush handle? If it can be tamed, then maybe.

Its kinda hard to tell from the sample chips but I like Amber slightly over the Tiger Eye.
I think they'll all look good in your beehive shape.

This is the one I voted for. Kind of reminds me of bone.

What are your thoughts?

I'd pick 12062 or 12068. All your poll choices are darker than I like.
