A nice matrix specimen with slightly greenish-gray to whitish aragonite threelings, well defined, on matrix with a few spots of native sulphur. The aragonite is probably fluorescent (orange in LW-UV and greenish phosphorescent as most of the specimens from sicily are .. but i did not test it).

Increasingly rare stuff.
