 It will turn brown when it dries but the pink will come back when you plane it.  It might stay pink after that with a good UV  coating and kept out of direct sunlight.  You have a nice piece of wood, a lot don't have near as much pink.  Steve

I saw the butt of the log and thought there was something special there, that's why I grabbed it. It turned out incredible. I'll post pictures tomorrow. I got 22 nice pieces from 2 manageable logs. Apparently this stuff isn't rare. I've never seen it though. I'm thinking if this wood days well and finishes well I may make a room in my house with it. Window frames, mirror, table, night stands, head board, largemouth bass mount backing, whatever. This is wild stuff.
