My writing partner for my other historical project had a strange dream in which she clearly saw the word "Browmil" written.  Thinking that it is a message from the Collective Unconscious, I have been searching for variations on it.

Wicki thinks this "Brownmillerite" is an interesting one, although only a chemist is likely to know why. Anyway, I am posting this in the expectation that it means something to someone in this quantumly entangled world.

Brownmillerite is a mineral with an interesting structure. Its chemical formula is Ca2(Al,Fe)2O5. It is named for Lorrin Thomas Brownmiller (1902-1988), chief chemist of the Alpha Portland Cement Company, Easton, Pennsylvania.
