Help with orange

Bob Fawcett
>I bought a block of cocobolo on ebay. It came nicely sealed with something that has an orange-yellow color. Now that I am turning it, I am finding orange splotches all over the wood. Its like this stuff splatters on the wood and leaves its color imbedded in the wood.
What could this be and how do I get rid of it. It doesn't look very good, this cocobolo is very red and the orange clashes. I don't think this is part of the wood.
