Mineral Description
 
healing crystals

This yellow sulfur has a nice pinkish contrast matrix rock and is imported by Kidz Rocks from San Felipe, Baja, Mexico.

You will receive one specimen 2 inch to 2 1/2 inch weighing between 1 and 3 ounces and with a nice amount of sulfur.

Bulk Purchase Specimen
You are buying one rock. You will receive a rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rock shown. The photograph with multiple rocks is so you can see the range of differences in this bulk purchase specimen listing. Photographing and listing every rock separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.
