Linda, I told you that Mary's Garden has CUT CRYSTAL (Nate Rudolph 
1975), but her description of it is not a pure white w/a white beard, 
but essentially the same as in the check list, which says: Standards 
milk white base w/light lemon and light lilac flush; falls milk white 
w/lemon hafts and 1/4" edge; ruffled, fluted; white beard tipped lemon; 
fragrant.  Hmmm. A puzzle for sure...wonder what you had that was PURE 
white? Was it also fragrant?
