By "them" (the restrictions that I supposedly listed) do you mean the bit
about "mineral/ore"? Because diamonds (AFAIK) aren't minerals, nor are they
ore, yet you said they could legitimately come from a {terkunra}. And I'm
not sure what all qualifies as minerals -- I suppose oil would, but what are
the limits?

(The reason I asked, as you might have found out by now, was that I wanted
to talk about a {cirla terkunra} and wasn't sure whether that was an
appropriate word to use.)

So I'm still not really much clearer than I was previously.
