Former Bob Olson/ Robert Chisholm
collection 1930's, 40's
SIZE: 2 1/2" x 1 3/4"
Description: A few years ago we purchased a collection of
antique minerals from the collection of Bob Olson. Bob had purchased
the collection himself a few years earlier from the estate of Robert
Chisholm , a collector from the 1930's and 40's. The specimens were
housed in hand built depression era cabinets and were "loosely"
cataloged. Each specimen filled a compartment within the cabinets and
all of them rested on top of their accompanying labels. After much time
cleaning the pieces and properly preserving all of the old labels
we are finally ready to offer some of the collection for sale here.
This specimen consists of well crystallized green adamite on a matrix
of limonite. Excellent aesthetics. Comes with the original handwritten
label (Robert Chisholm) that rested beneath the specimen in its
