Sulphur from Goldfield, Esmeralda Co., Nevada, United States

Sulphur
            from Goldfield, Esmeralda Co., Nevada, United States

This is only a 7 oz specimen but large because of the low SG of Sulfur. 

A fabulous summary of the Goldfield orebody by N.N. Brandes, can be found on Mindat.com. Basically Goldfield is said to be the largest sulfidizied gold ore body in North America. This event occured when hydrothermal solutions rich in HCl and SO2 from a shallow pluton encountered meteoric waters which leached volcanic and silicied rocks and deposited sulfides, gold and some tellurides. Gold ore reached 500 or more ounces per ton. Goldfield was once Nevada's largest city and reached a population of 20,000 five years after the first claims were stacked in 1902. Interestingly enough elemental sulfur is not on the Mindat list, and thus this may be a smelter product.
