From an amazingly gemmy batch of specimens that came out last year from this contemporary Sulfur find. 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 and jewel-like. This showy piece has a couple of particularly long crystals that stick out prominently, at 1.7 and 1.1 cm.
