Thank you sooo much Martali, I was going to ask where that word comes from .... Thks for sharing
but... who was it who at the very first decided or came upwith the idea that we are cohenites as in leonard cohen fans and why ?????
Dear anny, I do like the fact that word itself comes from a hard, shiny, silver mineral, named after the German mineralogist Emil Cohen, who first described and analysed it so long ago (1889) besides, for me it looks really beautiful on these pictures :D http://www.mindat.org/min-1107.html

However I have no idea when and who named our wonderful group of humans as Cohenites :D , but John Etherington's (Cohen night, my little darlings) suggestion is so adequate for sure!
