Default Need sime info in a yeast starter!!

I have been making yeast starters for almost all my beer's. When they have been completed I transfer them to a fully sanitized mason ball jar. After letting everything settle I put it in the fridge for storage until I brew. My question is there is three diff levels in the mason jar. Which level is the yeast?

The cleanish liquid level I believe is "wort" and then there is a small dark layer of deposit and a bigger lighter layer of deposit on the bottom. Will post pic. Wondering which is the yeast?
