Thanks Don. I am enjoying looking through your collection as well.

Thanks Greg. These pale green calcites were part of a relatively small find, and they weren't widely distributed amongst the Indian dealers. They were only available for a short time, so I'm glad I was able to pick this one up when I did.

Michael

Thank you Roger. There is so much Indian material on the market that after a while it's easy to just walk past. But if one has a great deal of patience, sometimes a nice sleeper is hidden amongst the more common stuff.
