Description

Old timer out of the collection of A.v.Jansson with two old labels, one of them written on on both sides. The sample is a cinnabar ore with massive cinnabar intergrown with gangue. According to the label it comes from Zlana, Siebenbürgen. Some research points to Zlana (Slana) in Slovakia near Kosice - the region around Nizna Slana was a provider of Hg ore in the old times and often was referred to as Zlana in older books and articles in the 19th century.
