Hardness is 2. It has shelly fracture, and it is partly transparent.
It has a white to yellowish streak, on the surfaces it has diamond luster ,and on the turns it has fat to resinous luster.
Mineral is of magmatic and sedimentary origin.
While volcanic activity it occurs by a sublimation of sulfur vapor and hydrogen sulfide oxidation.
Other information: Used in the production of sulfuric acids, paint, pharmaceuticals, disinfectants, explosives, pesticides, colors and pigments, an important element in vulcanization.
Insoluble in water and in acids.
Interesting facts: It is a poor conductor of heat, so when he comes to touch with warm hands, it increase it’s volume and strats to crackle.
