Oops. "Table Mountain" should of course be "Graves Mountain" when discussing the rutile crystal.

I also forgot to mention that several of the carved items came from the famous Faberge studios in late 19th and early 20th century (pre-revolution).

Rhodonite-cladded pillars can be seen at Mayakovskaya metro station in Moscow!
