Not sure what else you are looking for Adam - you have all the info? You will probably find this is neodymium glass - turns greeny blue under fluorescent light.  have bought 2 or 3 Caithness pieces this colour recently and they have all been neodymium. A nice design. I don't have one yet but will be buying one sooner or later. From Mark Hills book with list of engravers LS is probably Lorna Sutherland.

No sorry robo, the list of engravers in Mark Hill's book doesn't include anyone with those initials that I can see, but it says "engravers included" so is not a complete list

 :hi: It's not neodynum - it's cased amethyst.

Neodynum does not tend to be cased, and it's a far, far wishy-washier colour.
