I think you are correct about the possible mix-up, but I believe that was
straightened out a while ago. I vaguely remember it being with one of the
Seagraves stones. Blaine Reed is the person to ask.
I got a nice slice of Tulia (a) a while ago because it contains a large
black inclusion that I assume is carbonaceous. Also, in my personal
catalogue, I have Tulia (a) listed as an H5, but I don't know where that
came from, but probably again from Blaine.
