When I first started turning I would always look for the cleanest defect free wood to use.
After seeing all of the beautiful, interesting and eye catching turnings WITH defects, my opinion has definitely changed! I too, like the turquoise inlay and the way you used it here is beautiful.
Waaaay more interesting!
