Opal for Stanford Museum.
Curator Peterson of tho university
museum has Just uupacked a caso of
material collected by Mrs. Stanford in
Ceylon, and Including' also a great
opal presented to Mrs. Stanford by
Thomas Welton Stanford of Mel
bourne. This opal Is believed to bo
ono of tho most rcmnrkablo of Its kind
In existence. It Is a matrix ojnl and
measures about thrco by three and
one-half Inches, bearing indications of
having at one time been almost double
that size. The stono is very beautiful
In appearance, containing all colors of
tho spectrum, from deep red to azure
blue. Almost every shado that is
known flashes out In the sunlight.
The history of the stono is not yet
known hero. Curator Peterson will
communlcato with Thomas Welton
Stnnford on tho subject.
Tho most interesting feature of tho
Ceylon collection is n scries of ex
tracts from tho littddhlst Koran writ
ten with a stylus upon leaves of tho
talllpet palm, which blossoms only
twlco In n century. Thero nre about
soventy-flvo or eighty of the leaves,
which aro very thin nnd of an' ex
tended oblong form. They are cover
ed on both sides with Inscriptions.
The leaves aro bound together after
tho fashion of a Venetian blind, ho
that they may bo consulted and read
with very llttlo trouhlo.
Tho remainder of the collection In
cludes many examples of the dcllcato
handwork of the Ceyloncse, such as
embroidery, Ivory and ebony carvings,
and brass, copper and silver bowls.
