The observed reddening in the wavelength range 0.26-2.25 microns for comae of several comets can be represented quite well with model grains having real and imaginary parts of refractive index, m = m-prime - im-double prime, given by m-prime of about 1.38 and m-double prime of about 0.039, respectively. It is also possible to explain the observations of linear polarization and geometric albedo of comet comae.
