Thank you David for (a) writing such a beautiful book and (b) concentrating on the science and the art of Hongshan jade rather than the age old question of fake or not fake.

Your collection of skulls is incredible. They are one of the themes of Hongshan jade art but not a common one and you have a built up a beautiful collection. The first pair you showed with the weathering on contralateral gravity-dependent areas that you picked up in completely different locations is unique.

Also the shiu jing glass skulls. You have photographed them beautifully. Have you detected any signs of weathering on them such as crystal growth in the lugholes as seen on nephrite jade pieces.

Also what type of glass is this? I understand from crystal analysis that it is very unusual glass type.
Thanks David - well done to you for all your pioneering work.

James
