Several partly-intergrown Sulfur crystals rest on the white base material of this thumbnail piece. The largest of these crystals measures 0.6 x 0.5 x 0.4" (1.4 x 1.3 x 0.9 cm), and like the others, it is in good condition but is lightly damaged. Their orthorhombic prismatic form is excellent. All have the bright yellow color that is common for this specie and pearly luster, and all are transparent and moderately clear. The piece has come loose from its mount inside a plastic specimen box, but can be easily re-attached.
