Description

Sulfur is a soft, non-metallic element with a bright, lemon yellow color. It means ‘burning stone’ in recognition of it’s volcanic source and because it burns so easily. Sulfur is also called brimstone, with specimens that usually come from volcanic sulfur springs and vents called fumaroles. They exhibit small, bubbly holes throughout and have a greasy or satin feel with an egg-like odor. Sulfur is often produced as a byproduct of other things, such as oil refinement. Today it is mostly mined to produce sulfuric acid, and is used in many industrial applications, including making chemicals used in fertilizers, gunpowder, and petroleum products.
