Locality:
Cornwall, [England]
Context:
unknown
References:
CAT JAMESON,Robert 1810 1158
Notes:
From William Hunter's original collection. Although not a very striking specimen, it is of interest as it has stuck to it, a unique style of pre-Hunter 18th century label saying "Min Zinci vid Cat. 1756". The museum catalogue gives the locality Cornwall, but this is almost certainly wrong.
