Questions about an “excellent” brilliant cut

Can anyone please explain why some round brilliant cuts show 8 black spokes in their centers while others do not, even though they are both “excellent” cuts?

In some cases, the spokes are visible but white instead of black. Is this just lighting? Will they show variety in other lighting? Or is this a mistake?

I’ve linked two examples below:
