Comment: ex. Ydren Collection, A large, fine compound crystal of bright yellow sulfur from Italy, with fine transparency! These have gotten just so hard to obtain, and this is a very good one - for color, transparency, and sharp faces. The small dents you see are virtually all healed natural pocket fractures. Unavailable for decades, Italian sulfurs are still the most prized by collectors. OLD CLASSICS!
