    Excavating in museums can indeed be interesting. Some of those gemstones do not look Egyptian in origin. The photo is small and not entirely clear

      "Excavating in museums" can indeed be interesting. Some of those
      gemstones do not look Egyptian in origin. The photo is small and not
      entirely clear (http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD256109
      <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD256109>) but three stand
      out: at a guess, the rock-crystal gem (second row centre), the white
      collared ovoid (third row right; early Mesopotamian, possibly made of
      shell) and the white 'inscribed' seal (bottom right [X, dividing line,
      circle] burnt steatite?) would be worth pursuing if any contexts were known.

      I wonder what other goodies are hiding behind Joseph :-)

      All good wishes,

      Judith Weingarten
