El Desierto mine, San Pablo de Napa, Daniel Campos Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 4.4 x 4.1 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 for their size; not opaque bright yellow, but TRANSPARENT. Some crystals are dinged, but you really do not notice it amidst all the flash. 5.9 x 4.4 x 4.1 cm
