Thanks for the insight. Jaime A. Headden pointed out that it's from the
Adamantina Formation. Is it possible the formation itself was named for
diamonds? Or am I off in my own little world like everyone tells me? ;-)
PS: I've got one more! "Adam Ant lizard," the discoverers were listening to
80's new wave during the discovery. :-P
