Is there such a thing as a clear indian ?

Here's a pic of one from Etsy. I don't have access to my marble books right now, but I think you're right. It is a transparent banded coreless.

I found this about "Indians" on Marble Alan's page: 

INDIANS
Indian Swirls typically possess an opaque black base. However, some are translucent (so-called Maglites, since a powerful flashlight is required to make light pass through them), and these will have an amethyst, dark green, red, amber, or blue base.

Agree, Banded Transparent IMO.  I have heard of some newer collectors calling them "Clear (transparent) Indians" but if you ask me it's just adding to the confusion.

Indians are typically opaque black based, the biggest one shown in this group is actually a dark transparent green color, a "maglite Indian"

Well color me confusion then. This is just a change in nomenclature?
