El Desierto mine, San Pablo de Napa, Daniel Campos Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
Cabinet, 14.2 x 8.9 x 5.2 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. This is a LARGE plate with particularly gemmy crystals; not opaque bright yellow, but TRANSPARENT. They look like flashing gemstones of the most intense yellow imaginable! 14.2 x 8.9 x 5.2cm
