Hmmm...

Where did any of this "AA" or "X" namesake, or debate, originate??? 

BTW, I see no mention of an "R" nor a "G" model... (In ANY crystal catalog?) So again, ads alone ain't cuttin' it, peoples !? (I just sold 7 crystals catalogs for only $200. to Australia, BTW... And 3+ of those, were WINNERS!)
