Cindy Vaughan asked:

3 chapters in, and I have a question. This is not a spoiler. The mineral cavansite was not discovered until 1967. It wasnt found in India until 2004. However it is listed as an item in the museum. What am I missing?

Barbara I don't think you are missing anything; in fact, I think it is a very insightful comment. I am guessing, but perhaps it was just a simple error by the author? Cavansite is a very specific mineral though, so it is hard to understand how someone could refer to it without either knowing about it or researching it, and in either case, one would know that it was too recently discovered to have been in the museum's holdings.
