Description

Dating from the early 1930's we have a spongy mass of glena from the ABH Consols riddled with colourless to pale green / yellow sulphur crystals.

The sulphur is believed to have derived from the breakdown of silver sulphide ore.

A rich and interesting specimen with many of the sulphur crystals displaying complex twinning and they are accompanied by the occassional micro cerussite crystal
