This display contains a genuine sample of mummy linen dust from the Ptolemaic period (approx. 300 BC to 30 BC) of ancient Egypt. There is a color photo of a mummy from this period and the sample of mummy dust is presented in a glass vial. The display can be opened and the sample removed if desired for closer examination or study. This sample is legally sourced from an old collection. I had acquired a small piece of linen and these tiny fragments and dust fell away from the fragile material. I collected these and put them inside a small glass vial.
The display box measures approx. 3 x 4 x 1 inches and has a black pebblegrain finish with a glass viewing lid.
