With Antique Label

Description Tabs

L'Arbizon, Saint-Lary, Hautes-Pyrenees, Occitanie, France
Size Range: 
Small miniature (3-4.5 cm)
4 × 4 × 2.5 cm
Largest Crystal: 

A brown axinite crystal on matrix from a rare locality in the french pyrenees. A fine 19th century specimen, comes with hand-written label of A. A. Damour (1808-1902), a well-known french mineralogist (Notice: This one maybe not from Damour himself - the handwriting differs from the other Damour specimens in this auction). His personal mineral collection was sold to F. Krantz (who was in charge of the Krantz mineral dealership between 1891 and 1926),
probably shortly after his death. Damour was sufficiently famous that Krantz had special labels printed identifying the specimens from the
Damour collection - the second label. A corresponding number sticker is on-glued on the specimen.
Weight: 45 grams
