My mom got these 2 cases as a gift from a friend at work, whose father recently passed (memory eternal). He kept this stuff locked up for… nobody knows but a very long time. The design and feel of the cards and case suggests it’s many decades old.
The first card has different minerals from various American states, and the second card has species of molluscs(?) from Japan apparently (or maybe it was just made in Japan).
There’s no information to this and we have no idea where to look or what’s it’s worth. Does anyone know anything that can help please?
Not animal related, but I thought you guys might enjoy this great spell from
