Thank you for your comment. I guess the limestone matrix is soft and the crystals are often floaters. Indeed, so are most of the samples I have seen.

Regards

Here is a good example of why old labels are important. Without them the history would have been lost.

Former collection of Art Smith. This was one of six he had in his collection and he shows that they where collected in September 1977. These where trimmed out of a drill core. I have not only the smaller label that most likely was with the Sulfur but the 3x5 card that he kept all the data on. Even though I have changed over to the computer for tracking my collection I still have not only my old 3x5 cards from my early days of collecting, but also my parents cards.
