Ex Jim Johnston collection. We obtained this piece from George Stacy in Canberra, about 15 years ago. The late Jim Johnston was in a great position to obtain these specimen because at the time he worked as a buyer for Lempriere and Co, metal refiners in Sydney, and every week Martin Zwir sent his parcel of scheelite concentrate, from Nundle post office, down to Lempriere’s in Sydney.
