El Desierto mine, San Pablo de Napa, Daniel Campos Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
Cabinet, 10.8 x 5.7 x 4.5 cm
The finds of beautiful crystallized sulfur in Bolivia came at a great time, when old specimens from Sicily have become really hard to get and expensive, and only a trickle is coming from Russia. The crystals on this plate are PARTICULARLY gemmy; not opaque bright yellow, but TRANSPARENT. Some crystals are missing, but you really do not notice it amidst all the flash. 10.8 x 5.7 x 4.5 cm
