Sulfur, Calcite, Aragonite
Agrigento (Girgenti), Agrigento Province, Sicily, Italy
Cabinet, 13.7 x 13.0 x 8.8 cm
Cabinet Sicilian Sulfur and calcite after aragonite stalactites of this striking, old-time quality are seldom available. Two large, to 7.0 cm, glassy, bright, canary-yellow Sulfur crystals are dramatically inset amongst a jackstraw cluster of sparkly calcite pseudomorphing sharp, flat-terminated aragonite crystals from Sicily. Accompanied by an old, faded label in German. I would assume that this is pre-World War I material.
