2.3" Aesthetic Sulfur Crystal Cluster - Italy
This is a 2.3" wide, top-quality sulfur crystal cluster collected from the Cianciana Mine in Sicilia, Italy. The crystals have a ridiculously vibrant color and are in a solid habit instead of as a powdery coating typical in sulfur deposits. This specimen is mounted with mineral tack within the included acrylic perky display case.
The chemical composition of this vibrant mineral is S8, meaning 8 sulfur atoms bonded together to form a sulfur molecule. The crystal structure is typically tabular or as blocky dipyramids that form in sedimentary rock.
