    Sulfur (Sulphur) – Natural, Specimen, Yellow

    In some locations, such as Texas, sulfurs form in salt domes above oil deposits. When drilling for oil, drill cores may very rarely emerge with intact crystals, such as this specimen. Likely preserved as office decor for oil company executives, if you consider the cost of drilling, Rob Lavinsky quips, these make "the world's most expensive paperweights." 24.0 x 13.0 x 13.0 cm.
