El Desierto mine, San Pablo de Napa, Daniel Campos Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
Cabinet, 10.3 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. The crystals on this plate are PARTICULARLY gemmy; not opaque bright yellow, but TRANSPARENT. There are some missing crystals, as is the case with most of these, but you really do not notice it amidst all the flash. 10.3 x 8.9 x 5.2 cm
