Super artistic toenail specimen consisting of elongate, dipyramidal, yellow sulfur crystals perched consummately on a water-clear Gypsum crystal. This piece has perfect form and composition and is in exceptional condition. A resinous, gemmy Sulfur crystal cluster graces the apex of a gem, diamond-shaped, 3 cm Gypsum crystal with another, not as well formed, small Sulfur group at the side. Combinations of high quality Gypsum and Sulfur, especially in this size, are rare from Italy. A small Miniature, or "Toenail size"
