We've sold many Italian sulphur specimens over the years, but this is definitely one of the best. The sulfur you see is actually a conglomeration of several intergrown sulfur crystals with one primary crystal that makes up the bulk of it, and that's mainly what you see from the front. This large suphur crystal is 5.6cm wide. The color is as good as it gets and the specimen lights up like a beacon when illuminated. It's hard to really capture in a photo how this thing glows! 

These Italian sulphur specimens are becoming harder and harder to acquire - especially the high-end ones like this. All of this material was mined decades ago, and no more material is coming out because of changes to sulphur mining techniques. This is a very special piece! It comes with a custom Sunnywood display base.
