Sulfur occurs naturally as the element, often in volcanic areas. This has traditionally been a major source for human use. It is also widely found in many minerals including iron pyrites, galena, and epsom salts. Modern sulfur production is almost entirely from the various purification processes used to remove sulfur from natural gas, oil, and tar sands. All living things contain sulfur and when fossilized (as in fossil fuels) the sulfur remains present.
The color of this sulfur specimen is so bright and vibrant. It makes me think of happy days and moments in life. Not to mention, the little crystals glisten so much in the sunlight. Sulfur is believed to help people with anger issues and to enhance creativity.
