Italian sulphur specimens are some of our most favorite, and they are getting harder and harder to find. These specimens are all quite old, and as collectors gobble up what remains on the market it leaves the supply scarce. This nice, affordable example has multiple well-defined sulphur crystals on bituminous aragonite. The sulphur crystals are up to 1.9cm in size and are very gemmy. The aragonite is HIGHLY fluorescent under longwave UV and glows a bright orange-pink color.

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
