Celestine on Native Sulphur

ID: CC21660
Machów mine in Tarnobrzeg, Poland was an opencast Sulphur mine, exploiting the Sulphur deposits formed in a vuggy limestone. Sadly, the mine is now abandoned and what was the open pit is now a large lake, no doubt of great joy to anglers but not mineral collectors. This good sized cabinet specimen is a beautiful example of crystallised Native Sulphur and colourless to slightly milky Celestine, the latter occurring as long prisms radiating out from Sulphurous nodes all over the specimen. It really is superb and under LWUV the Celestine fluoresces bright white and the Native Sulphur, a dull mustard yellow. The specimen is accompanied by the previous collector’s label and a Corrie Minerals label, a great reminder of a very popular British mineral dealing couple.
