Description

A sulfur specimen from a very uncommon locality: It hosts a textbook-like, lemon-yellow sulfur crystal perched in a little vug.

Comes with nice old label.

Galizien is an old name for a territory situated in today's southern poland and western ukraine. The kingdom of Galizien existed during 1867-1918. The nucleus of historic Galicia lies within the modern regions of western Ukraine: Lviv, Ternopil and Ivano-Frankivsk. In the 18th century, territories that later became part of the modern Polish regions of Lesser Poland (Małopolskie), Subcarpathian (Podkarpackie) and Silesian (Śląskie) Voivodeship were added to Galicia.
I was not able to identify any location named Truscanice or similar, the specimen is very probably from a mine in south-eastern poland. Any hints are welcome.
