I bought this to use as a fretboard inlay material to mimic a volcano with lava. Atlante is really easy to work with and polishes nicely. When you sand it, it looks very different than the raw piece. Swirls and patterns emerge as you go through the layers. The only slight negative is that the swirls do show a consistent pattern, so it's not totally like a shell material (with random swirls). Overall, I'll use this material again for inlays.
