~ III Precious Stones & Minerals Chromolithograph ~ ORIGINAL antique 1880

This is really as good as it gets with original antique mineral/precious stones prints. The second of this item I have had available, the other has sold (to a lovely customer :).I have to say, this is one of the prettiest prints I've seen.
It is an original old German hand coloured print of 132 years old. These are very hard to find! It was originally from a publication called Illustrierte Mineralogie" by Schuberts and wow, what a long life it has already had! I have provided photographs and also a scan.

Printed by J. F. Schreiber
Eßlingen bei Stuttgart
Germany,1880. Handcoloured.

What I love is how LARGE this item is and how beautiful are the precious stones, gems and minerals (and crystals) portrayed. This is something you will rarely see. The large size is unusual. This item is a chart worthy of any wall. NOT for craft purposes! An item to collect, enjoy and keep. The detail is tremendous! If it is not purchased at this price I will keep this treasure for myself!! Please note, the blue of the stones bottom left is closest to that in the 2nd image (a scan).

This is an ORIGINAL ANTIQUE (not a modern reproduction) and so there is only one available, however I have others of this series available and am adding them to etsy currently.
