Wonderful timing!  I've been on the eBay page for the last couple of days trying to decide.  Many thanks for organizing this.

 

One thing confuses me: What are the difference between the Regular and Premium ebonite?  Is it only the colours that are available or is it an actual difference in the material?  Sorry if I'm asking the obvious, but I've not seen any clarification of this anywhere.

 

Thanks!

Premium Ebonite is imported material and also has more bright colors as compared to regular or special ebonites..
Regular Ebonite is made in India...
Quality and properties are majorly similar...
