# SUL-38, $25.00 Sold!
Dims: 2.23x2.15x1.73in (5.66x5.45x4.40cm) .... Wt: 2.40oz (68.0g) .... Loc: Napa Cordilera, Oxidental, Potosi Dept., Bolivia
My camera has a difficult time distinguishing between the sulfur crystals that cover one face of this host rock. My eye, however, discerns that they are mostly very nice, although imperfect. They have excelent color, luster, and transparency, are generally well-formed but with many pockets, and have very little damage.
# SUL-37, $75.00 Sold!
Dims: 1.67x1.52x0.89" (4.23x3.86x2.27cm) .... Wt: 1.03oz (29.3g) .... Loc: Vodinskoye, Samara, Russia
This specimen displays dozens of highly transparent yellow sulfur crystals with excellent form, although only two are relatively large (the largest measuring 16mm in length). And these two show some damage (just a little on the largest). The sulfur crystals seem to come in two colors - a pure yellow and a bright lemon-yellow. The finest individual crystals are in pockets on the bottom. The crystals have a vitreous luster generally dulled slightly by what looks like fine scratches, especially the larger crystals. There are a few internal fractures visible in the largest crystals.
# SUL-36, $135.00 Sold!
Dims: 4.50x3.04x1.46" (11.42x7.71x3.71cm) .... Wt: 6.68oz (189.5g) .... Loc: Vodinskoye, Samara, Russia
A half-dozen sulfur crystals are displayed in the cavities of the host rock. They are transparent, some extremely so. All of the larger crystals show some damage, while the smaller ones generally look perfect. The ones in the middle are deeper in color, while the ones on the edges of the cluster are much lighter. The host rock appears to be calcite, some of which display excellent (but small) doubly-terminated rhombohedral crystals. Of special note is a tiny black inclusion on one of the sulfur crystals. A loupe shows it as a black, branched structure whose root is embedded in the sulfur, and which has a black fiber threaded through its "branches" (which are tiny).
# SUL-35, $58.00 Sold!
Dims: 5.04x3.61x1.69" (12.81x9.16x4.29cm) .... Wt: 23.75oz (672g) .... Loc: Machow, Poland
This cabinet specimen displays translucent yellow crystals of sulfur on most of one side. The crystals are a dirty-yellow color, and a loupe reveals a dusting of black minerals on all of the surfaces. Still, they have a vitreous luster and this specimen sparkles nicely. There are also a few patches of dirty gray translucent crystals, which look like calcite (although the origin of this specimen makes calcite unlikely). The host rock is pieces of a tough gray rock intergrown with massive sulfur. This specimen, naturally enough, smells strongly of sulfur.
