ID: CC20362
A stockwork of thin carbonate veins, probably Calcite or Dolomite, form a honeycomb structure of individual cells, all filled with charcoal-black massive Goethite and/or sparkling reddish-brown Goethite micro-crystals surrounding void space.  The specimen, from Hollister Zug, near to Kirchen, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, is relatively light weight due of its high porosity caused by the network of voids.

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 4.8 cm; it is complete (untrimmed) and is numbered 401/6.  A small label bearing this same number is glued to one side of the specimen along with a Carl Rumpff label, dated 1889 on the base.  The Archduke label is in excellent condition; it has never been folded; it is the original size and there is no foxing.  The specimen comes with one of the unique thick green card boxes which the Archduke had specifically made to house the specimens.
