Catalogue Number
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">I created the first catalogue of "The Matthew Webb Mineral Collection" in 2010. The paper catalog tags were glued to each piece in the collection. Each paper tag was enumerated and included the species name and locality. I no longer catalogue the collection in this way because the Webb-site allows continuous recording of every piece that is acquired or sold, traded out, donated or even given away.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Foote Mineral Company also adopted the rare practice of gluing labels to mineral specimens over 100 years ago and during an era when s mineral specimen label could not simply be "shruck" within seconds using an inexpensive photocopier.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia  </p>
