A very beautiful, canary yellow, Sulphur crystal from Bolivia! Although not found on a matrix (typically smaller crystals on matrix with less vibrant color are found), these larger crystals rival those found in Italy! This attractive thumbnail is very lustous and rich in color. The tip of the crystal is fully terminated, and displays three distinct faces. Also evident on a couple of these faces are the bubble craters that remained during the cooling procees.

PLEASE NOTE: All of the photographs are not to scale. Some are enlarged to give you an accurate and an in depth view of all the details for you to see. Please always refer to specimen size in all my listings for the actual size, as this is what the final price is based on. Although picture colors can vary slightly from browsers to computers, I go to great lengths in photographing all mineral specimens with complete color accuracy, without any retouching whatsoever! My photo studio lighting consists of 4800K fluorescent lighting, which simulates the wavelengths of daylight. In some cases for a different effect I have utilized regular incandescent lighting to provide a different effect. If a specimen has knowingly been repaired, I will always disclose this information to you.
