Don’t stain it. Use a washcoat of shellac, which will help pop the figure. If you then want to darken it, use your color in the finish, not directly on the wood. You can use TransTint dyes with shellac/lacquer/water-borne varnish OR an oil-based stain mixed in some oil-based poly. As always, experiment on scrap.
