Sulphur (native crystallized with petroleum inclusions)
Girgenti
Sicily, Italy
7.1 x 4 x 6.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $500


A very attractive (and genuine natural) Sulfur with a sharp, well formed 3.2 CM crystal nicely perched on a calcite/ aragonite matrix. There are petroleum inclusions in the Sulfur that prove that this is natural and not one of the common fakes. An older (pre 1960's) piece with great composition, there are some tiny edge chips visible so this is not for a perfectionist. If perfect the price would be far more, but it is still an attractive, reasonable cost classic mineral specimen.
