ID: CC18755
An attractive old specimen of salmon-pink tinted creamy-white Dolomite crystals to 8 mm on edge perched on the side of a translucent Quartz crystal with internal transparent zones.  The primary Quartz crystal measures 5.9 x 3.0 x 2.2 cm and has a scattering of tarnished Chalcopyrite crystals on one side.
Ex. the Mineral Collection of Archduke Stephan Franz Viktor of Hungary (1817 to 1867), with a historic Archduke (Erzherzog) Stephan label incorporating his coat of arms.  This label measures 8.6 x 4.7 cm and is complete (untrimmed) and is numbered 76/35.  A small label bearing this same number is glued to the specimen and it comes with one of the unique green card boxes which the Archduke had specifically made to house the specimens.  A Carl Rumpff label, dated 1889, is attached to the specimen.  The Archduke Stephan label has been neatly folded with one side protected and near-new, the other half is discoloured and slightly water stained, but all writing remains perfect.
