I bought a set of both low grade and high grade. Mostly because I goofed in the reading comprehension part and clicked fast through to my order, then realized a week later I needed the +S!
So I have both, and I can’t really tell the difference between them.
I’ll try to take pictures when I can and upload for you guys to see.
The website says:
The end grain on Resin-Ivory™ shows a swirl pattern whereas Resin-Ivory+S™ shows the end grain feature of real ivory with the Shreger lines - hence the "+S" designation. The Shreger lines form a herringbone or diamond patterning in real ivory and our Resin-Ivory+S™ has this same grain feature.
It sounds like you should be able to see a difference in the ends of the pieces.
When I was reading the descriptions I got the impression that if the ends weren't going to be seen, there's really no reason to go with the +S.

I tried to take some pictures but it didn't show so well. I need to try again, and I apologize for not having the time to do it.
On my pieces, the end grain is indistinguishable between +S and regular. But the sides look totally different, with the +S looking more uni-directional like bone, wood or other natural material The regular is not so well banded, like the way cheap home depot lumber looks.
