A very simple specimen, this small piece consists of a singly dipyramidal native Sulfur crystal. It has warped but good, well-developed form and only one small spot of damage on the tip of each pyramid, where the crystal may have been attached to its place of formation. It has the standard bright yellow coloration and translucence of Sulfur, and the crystal has a pearly luster. A small piece of host rock is attached to the crystal, and close examination under 10-power or greater magnification will show that the host rock is crusted with tiny crystals of celestite and calcite. Neat!
