Flame or Chatoyance? for pen turners... *PIC*

JL
>and anyone else who cares to answer. Can flame or chatoyance show up on pens? I was making a table out of some makore. The flat pieces had this hiding in it (see below). Would the flame or chatoyance show up in such a small scale or would it take a larger piece? Do you lose the flame marks when you go round? The pic below is of a roughly 4" x 12" piece from one of the aprons.
