ID: CC20378
This small miniature labelled as “Blend” in the Archduke Stephan Collection is from Kall near the town of Mechernich in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.  The specimen has a high density with the appearance of a light brick-red block of rock with an earthy texture, but has been determined as being Cerussite.  It does not have the appearance of Cerussite but does possess its density, hence a somewhat enigmatic old-time specimen from this historic collection.

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 smaller label measures 8.6 x 4.8 cm; it is complete (untrimmed) and is numbered 99/178, with this same number glued to the specimen’s base.  A label with the species and locality is also glued to the base, but does not bear the usual “Carl Rumpff label, 1889” inscription.  This smaller sized Archduke label is in good condition, with a little light foxing and one central vertical crease.  The specimen comes with one of the unique thick green card boxes which the Archduke had specifically made to house the specimens.  An other very old label accompanies this specimen.
