Sulfur, Alum-(K)
El Desierto mine, San Pablo de Napa, Daniel Campos Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 6.5 x 3.8 cm
This is one of the most striking Sulfur specimens from an amazingly gemmy batch of specimens that came out last year from this contemporary Sulfur find. This dramatic piece has isolated, gemmy, canary-yellow crystals on the starkly contrasting, snow-white alum-covered matrix. The crystals on this plate are particularly gemmy; not opaque bright yellow, but transparent and jewel-like.
