I can think of goth lifestyle afficiando's who would just die to have something like that to wear... right up there with the black lipstick and fingernail polish..

I didn't think they had any clarity.. but i can see i'm mistaken..

Does anyone have a regular source for that sort of material. Andrew maybe?

Wow! Exceptional! (And I'm not wearing black lipstick) I've got stacks of australian pleonaste but not a single piece thats not 100% opaque. According to Schumann it's also called ceylonite - must be named after locality, maybe you know someone that goes to Sri Lanka regularly and might have a look around for you, Noob?
