~ PLATE 17: CALAMINE, CHALYBITE, RHODOCHROSITE & CERUSSITE

Precious Stones & Minerals Chromolithograph ~ ORIGINAL antique 1911

This is an original old chromolithograph of 101 years old. It was originally from the FIRST EDITION of a publication on minerals from around the globe. Such beautiful old richly coloured antique prints of minerals and precious stones is hard to find!

Printed by W. & R. Chambers, Limited
Handcoloured.

This set of chromolithographic prints, including this one, are spectacular (see link below for more). The most amazing thing about them, which cannot be portrayed through scans or photographs, is how the silver and gold pops out! The silver and gold SHINES, glimmers. The detail is tremendous and the quality high. There is a total of 40 prints in the set and they are originals. Modern reproductions of such prints just would not compare! Chromolithographs have a special quality and these, with the gold and silver, have that addition factor!! Tell me to stop raving...I LOVE THEM! If they don't sell I will not be too heartbroken as I would frame them in black frames and hang in a row......

I will be adding the rest of this amazingly beautiful set of mineral prints over this week.
