A few years ago I had someone here who wanted all the Sycamore I could get.  2" thick for carving.  Not sure what he was carving, but you might look into it.
If you want something done correctly, you have to do it yourself.

Never EVER have I seen cherry spalt. Oak, maple, gum, elm, sycamore, on and on, never cherry. FYI

 Nice gum Tom.

Be hard to see in cherry, like butternut or walnut.

I think cherry must have some sort of anti-fungle property of something.

It's possible some extractives prevent it or mask the coloration. Don't know enough about it to say. It does rot, spalt is just a step away from rot.
