Values

luminance
Is a keyword indicating that the associated mask image is a luminance mask, that is that its relative luminance values must be used when applying it.
alpha
Is a keyword indicating that the associated mask image is an alpha mask, that is that its alpha channel values must be used when applying it.

Formal syntax

luminance | alpha

Examples

<rect x="10" y="10" width="80" height="80"
    fill="red" fill-opacity="0.7" />
which leads to the following square:

to this box:

The result, if your browser supports the property, with different value of mask-type applied to the <mask> element are these two different squares:

mask-type: alpha; mask-type: luminance;
