I prefer she does not untill our publication has appeared ;-)

'Naturalis' is the Dutch National Museum of Natural History, which is a merger
between the former National museum of Geology, the National Museum of Natural
History, and the State Herbarium.

The former owner indeed donated the stone to the Museum, which is an extremely
kind act!
