Carl Ditter

Carl Ditter was apparently a mineral collector in Frankfurt am Main, Germany; at least that is where his collection ended up. It must have been a large collection, considering the specimen numbers going up to at least 4521. It is interesting (perhaps unique) that the specimen number is printed on each label rather than handwritten, suggesting that the collection was prepared as a unit, probably for sale. Many such Ditter specimens were sold in 2003-2004 from the stock of the Senckenberg Nature Museum in Frankfurt.
