Notes:
From William Hunter's original bequest. Very nice specimen. Although the museum catalogue merely identifies the specimen as "Hunterian" an adhering Jacob Forster label "12. Oo", identifies the specimen as being "12. A beautiful coloured Stalactite from France 4 4s 0d" on his invoice to William Hunter, dated 29th August 1777.
