Lindsay states that the red dust found in one of the "Holly's" eyes is "red chrome pyrope," going on to demonstrate its optic properties and claiming that as an isotropic mineral, it goes extinct when rotated under polarized light. Pyrope garnet - and all other isotropic minerals for that matter - would remain extinct at any angle under polarized light. See more »

Who Were These 'Holly Golightly' Thieves?
12 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The beginning to this episode was one of the coolest I've seen. Three women, all dressed like "Holly Golightly" in the classic film "Breakfast at Tiffany's," enter a jewelry store and rob it. How they smashed all the glass at once was cool and how the escaped was pretty good, too. Unfortunately, a man got shot and killed accidentally in the holdup, so it turns into much more than just a robbery. Most of the CSI team works on this case.

The secondary story involves a woman who mummified in a fairly short period and was found in the walls of a high-rise that was just in the middle of demolition. How she got into that state and who killed her are the questions. Mac is the main player on this one.

This was a good episode and think it would have been a season-opener than last week's story.
