ID: CC20395
Pale clove-brown hexagonal crystals of Pyromorphite scattered over a hackly, naturally etched, white Quartz and slatey grey matrix.  The Pyromorphite forms translucent squat prisms to about 4 mm, but in one area, larger, although incomplete crystals, have formed; the largest to 1.5 cm long by 0.5 cm diameter and all with a bright glassy lustre.  From Rheinbreitbach in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

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 6.6 x 4.5 cm and has been very heavily trimmed, so losing most of the printed and hand-written text, but does still retain the catalogue number 109/113.  A small label bearing this same number is glued beneath the specimen as is a Carl Rumpff label, dated 1889.  It is understood these labels were trimmed by curators at the Museum of Natural History of the Humboldt University in Berlin, to fit within their specimen boxes, after being bequeathed by Carl Rumpff’s widow in late 1889.
