Tree type help- turtle shell maple?

I am trying to find more information on a type of wooden gift I was given. The man described it somewhere along the lines of a turtle shell maple tree. Or it might have been tortoise...I am unsure. Is anyone familiar with type of wood/tree?

What you're asking about isn't a kind of tree as much as a pattern found in the wood. It's a pattern that's mimicked in faux painting, and in plastics (tortoise shell combs & glasses frames, for instance). At one time these items were made with the real shells of tortoises, but now it's just painted on or imbedded in the material.

I'll bet the wood looks something like one of these

Compare that to actual tortoise shell

Tortoise shell patterns in wood can come from tree burls, which are weird outgrowths from the trees http://www.nelsonwood.com/texas%20burls/txeas%20oak%20burl%20(4).jpg They're pretty ugly on the surface, but when cut and polished, they can look like this http://www.liquidplate.com/images/films/BW-49-11.jpg

There are several maple trees that make burls common in woodworking. Some of them are the big-leaf maple http://www.exoticwoodgroup.com/about_maple_burl.htm sugar maple http://www.woodiewww.com/files/sugarmaple.html rock maple http://www.woodiewww.com/files/sugarmaple.html <- shows rough-cut burls before being cut and polished and red maple http://www.wonderfulwood.com/gallery/mapleburlpot.html Hope that's what you were looking for.
