I'm thrilled, maybe now many readers of the list
rush to their drawers and showcases, to look for more examples of other
where they thought before, that the lighter colour was due terrestrial
oxidation and the individuals not that fresh.

Let's wait, what they'll find!

Looking at his page....the Buzzard is red to a much lesser extent.
Good observation, though -- it makes sense that H's would still show at
least some hematite presence, if that is was causes the red coloration.

The first link in my last email goes against what you say above. Note that
the pictured stone has a black, frothy rear and a reddish shield-shaped
