ID: CC20409
Five translucent, blocky grey Anglesite crystals snuggly sit in vugs on top of a chlorite-rich Siderite matrix from the mine at Siegen, Arnsberg in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.  The crystals measure up to 1.4 cm long and of the five, three display well as they sit near the front of vugs.  The best crystal shows a terrific, slightly curved, chisel point termination.  The matrix is a honeycomb mass of plumose, dark-chocolate-brown Siderite crystals, often coated with pale green chloritic minerals.

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 7.2 x 5.2 cm and has been very heavily trimmed, so completely losing all of its ornate borders and much of its printed and hand written wording.  It does retain the lower section of the coat of arms and the catalogue number 105/6.  A small label bearing this same number is glued to one side of the specimen.  There is no Carl Rumpff label attached.  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.  This specimen is accompanied with a small rectangular paper label that is water damaged.
