It is very beautiful as is… looks like marble. Of course spalted maple also takes a beautiful high-polish shine. Decisions, decisions. :-)

This is awesome. I like the misleading effect of how it looks like its made of stone. Great job!

Very nice spalting – looks like a few punk spots on the rim? Or is that the light? I would recommend a good finish also as the bacterial action of the spalting will start up again if the wood gets damp. I have heard somewhere that boiling or microwaving spalted wood will stop the process? I have not tried this so I cannot be sure if it works or not or whether this will erase some of the color.
