If the website is gone there is always the 'wayback machine' that accesses archives of selected websites. Do you recall the www. for HEĆ BOHEMIA?

Another thought - could you add a photo of your spiral weight to your snail thread or even start a new one asking for info on HEĆ BOHEMIA?

I'm very interested in Czech glass, but I've never heard of Heć Bohemia.  It certainly wouldn't have been part of the Sklo Union group though, because SU glassworks only made pressed items.

The spiral-on-a-rock isn't mine.  I saw it on the Internet yesterday and took note of the label, forgetting to save the site.

This mystery might now be solved... I've found a similar rock paperweight with an Egermann label on ebay.  Also, a google image search of "Egermann paperweight" brings up several examples.

Thanks Anik.
I've sold this now. As for my Czech glass, the neodymium moon is still an open issue.
