Many small native Sulfur crystals are embedded in the white calcite matrix of this piece. All of the exposed ones are damaged or broken, but a crevice has shielded a few, which are in excellent condition. The largest of these has visible dimensions of 0.5 x 0.3 x 0.2" (1.3 x 0.7 x 0.5 cm). All that are intact show excellent orthorhombic bipyramidal form and possess the bright yellow color and subadamantine luster that are common for Sulfur. They are translucent and are surrounded by countless tiny calcite crystals.
