Sulphur (native crystallized with petroleum inclusions)
stock #14.1-429
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.
Sulphur (native crystals on Aragonite)
stock #6.2-946
Agrigento, Agrigento province
Sicily, Italy
7.5 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


Excellent large zoned yellow crystals to 3 CM size are clustered in a hemispheric arrangement on a thin matrix. Good clarity with gemmy areas and selective frosting on some faces. In excellent condition despite the age and delicacy of this specimen. A very pretty classic specimen, and far better in person.
Celestite (Barian Celestine)
stock #AC 313
Girgenti
Sicily, Italy
9.7 x 7.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $325


A beautiful glassy spray of powder blue crystals radiating upward from a massive base. This is a very old specimen from the classic Sulfur locality that has been mined for many centuries. This type of celestite with the blue color has sometimes been labeled as Barite but often on analysis is found to be Celestite with some Barium, The piece is attractive despite chips and damage to a few crystals. Very uncommon to find material this attractive on the market, the blue color is especially desirable.
HOLD Native Sulphur w. Gypsum
stock #HOLD 8.2- 110 X
Girgenti
Sicily, Italy
4.7x4.2 CM (miniature)
price: $110


From another classic locale this older miniature has well formed orthohombic crystals in an esthetic and oriented arrangement. These mines are long closed and have produced some of the best Sulpher ever found. This is a good example of the crystal form that made this location famous and is affordable compared to most.
