It is difficult to find sulfur specimens today with discrete crystals like this. Several, well formed, translucent, sulfur crystals are emplaced on matrix. While the crystals all exhibit the classic, rich, yellow color, all have minor bituminous inclusions (important proof they are real, and not man-made!). The largest crystal measures 3.3 cm in length. Considering the softness of sulfur, there are very few wilbers on the crystals. This is an incredibly complex specimen with both visual and crystallographic appeal, of Sulfur of a rare habit. I value it highly for all these reasons and I think that, of all the sulfurs out ther ein this size and price range that you might buy, this is one of the more unique and eyecatching.
