That is amazing.  Those are truly one in a million boards.

When we see boards like that which are are so stunning, with such figure, we price them based on rarity, because there isn't anything to compare them to and they have no equivalent.

The people who buy these do so for the rarity and figure, and price is not a consideration.  For example, I had a remarkable set of curly walnut live edge slabs a few years ago that a guy just wandered in and bought, no fuss, no muss.  A few minutes later I saw him arguing with someone on the the other end of his cell phone, and he was getting pretty mad.  I asked him what was going on and he said his private pilot was complaining that the slabs were going to be difficult to get the onto his airplane!  Turns out he had flown in from Louisiana to buy them.
