These bright Sicilian sulfurs have an unusually glassy luster as well as hydrocarbon inclusions. When forming on their calcite matrix, the crystals were exposed to oil and bitumen. As a result, they contain these materials inside. This also proves they are indeed natural Sicilian crystals, since these inclusions prove unique to this location. 18.0 x 13.0 x 12.0 cm, Cozzodisi Mine, Sicily, Italy. © Rob Lavinsky, www.iRocks.com.
