Are you an expert of chemical?

Because I found many beautiful pattern this week, including something
radial-randomize or circular-randomize bump pattern. They are useful and play an
important role.
Maybe my program can automatically pick them(the parameter of control where the
large-value color-block appear), fitting the shape of the woodgrain
angular-shape curve you make. I think maybe they have relation...
