El Desierto mine, San Pablo de Napa, Daniel Campos Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.8 x 4.0 cm
From an amazingly gemmy batch of specimens that came out last year (2008) 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.
