Mike, Nice Baryte. I have nothing to say about the Japanese Quartz, except my birthday is coming up soon. (Is that a subtle hint?)

Bob,

It does have a very slight green tint that I think is exaggerated by the color temperature of the lighting. It was difficult to get a good overall color balance for some mysterious reason.
