Mokume Gane!

Mokume is a mixed-metal laminate with distinctive layered patterns. Literally translating as "wood eye (i.e., burl) metal", the name was borrowed from one type of pattern welding used to forge katana blades. As another recent variation, has also been used to describe similarly-patterned laminations among different colors of polymer art clay.
