What Is Sublimed Sulfur?
Sulfur is a naturally occurring mineral produced by volcanoes; its presence attributed to rife deposits of sulfur throughout the Earth’s crust and upper mantle. Commonly referred to as brimstone, sulfur is found in its raw state surrounding volcanic vents. The mineral is relatively light and reacts with all elements save for gold, platinum, iridium, tellurium, and the noble gases. Interestingly, sulfur produces the following compound sulfide minerals: pyrite, cinnabar, galena, sphalerite, and stibnite. Sulfates produced include gypsum, alunite, and barite.
