Please help read the label!

Please help me to decipher the location on this label. This is part of a large collection I inherited from my grandfather, along with my interest in minerals, back in the late 1940s when I was about 10 years old. I ran across the specimen while going through my collection. I can read the first word "chalcedony," but not the second, apparently the location. Can anyone make it out? The nearest I can make of it is "Tunisia," but I am not sure.

This is especially important to me as (1) it belonged to my grandfather, (2) most of the collection was thrown away while I was in the military (Heck, they're "just rocks!"), and (3) I would like to leave them to my granddaughter who is interested in mineralogy.

I uploaded a picture labelled "Chalcedony" or "Please Help," or something like that.

Thanks to anyone who can try to help.
