Former Bob Olson/ Robert Chisholm collection 1930's, 40's

SIZE: 2 1/2" x 1 3/4"             PRICE: $100.00

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 compartment.
