ID: CC20406
A large, continuous surface coating of light, peppermint-green Atacamite covers a micro-crystalline Quartz matrix with an outer light grey exterior.  From Braubach at Bad Ems in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, the Atacamite forms matt microcrystals with an earthy texture.

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 9.8 x 8.1 cm; it is complete (untrimmed) and is numbered 145/12.  A small label bearing this same number is glued to one side of the specimen along with a Carl Rumpff label, dated 1889.  The Archduke label is in good condition; it has mild foxing and has been folded twice, leaving one vertical and one horizontal crease.  The specimen comes with one of the unique green card boxes which the Archduke had specifically made to house the specimens.  Another very old paper label accompanies the specimen.
