Preparation

By melting or burning the native sulphur-earth, or any metallic sulphide, and condensing the vaporized sulphur in large chambers.

Characters

Sublimed sulphur is a gritty powder, canary-yellow in color, and possessing the characters of the element as already described. It may be acid in reaction from the presence of a little sulphuric acid, formed by slow oxidation, and should be freed from this by washing with distilled water, after which it becomes "sulphur lotum."
