Hickory can come in lighter tan sapwood colors, light brown or darker brown heartwood, or sometimes a mixture of both dark and light on the same stick called 'calico hickory'. These variations are aesthetic only and do not affect the integrity of the wood at all. No two are exactly alike and your jo staff you receive will be unique. The pictures are taken of previously created staffs and are intended to show the variations possible in hickory.
