Miniature, 4.5 x 3.2 x 2.8 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
Stunning miniature! A good Sulfur inhabits most everyone's list of "must-haves," but to find two such quality crystals together, isolated on matrix, is a minor miracle. Note the sharp form of these crystals, quite a bit less modified than one normally sees and more "textbook" in style. The larger crystal, pristine and 2.3 cm in height, is deep yellow, GEMMY and lustrous. The second crystal, equal in size, but just slightly lighter in color, is nearly as perfect save a very small side contact and one small unobtrusive ding. All in all, a remarkable pair of Sulfur crystals that is so finely displayed you can look at it from any angle pretty happily, 360 degrees. This Sulfur specimen is much much rarer than the Cozidizzi Mine stuff....Not from that mine. This is from a much rarer mine during the "old days" of mining!
