Some of the most desirable sulfur specimens are associated with white aragonite, as this one from the Cianciana Mine shows very clearly. This is an old time piece, from an old collection, dating back to before 1991 when the mine closed. It features sharp, gemmy yellow sulfur crystals set amongst sharp white aragonite crystals.  The last of the sulfur mines in Sicily closed in the early 1990s, so there will be no new material like this in the future.
