Description

From old Dr. Krantz stock, comes with old "Museu Paleontologich Català" (Barcelona) label, this is very likely modern "Instituto Catalán de Paleontología". Very rare label, this is only the second one I ever have seen.
The label means: "Chalcedoine - Montjuich Barcelona". The "Montjuïc" is the backyard mountain of Barcelona, Catalonia's capital, place of the World Exhibition 1929 and the olympic games in 1992 and many other touristic attractions. A rare sample!
