You’ve probably heard of the sulphur on the periodic table, but not everyone has seen crystalized sulphur! Many strong odors are produced by sulfur compounds: the smell of skunks, matches, garlic, grapefruit, and rotten eggs are all caused by sulfur! While sulphur is abundant in the earth, it’s rare in a pure form at the earth’s surface. This crystalline sulphur material forms near volcanic vents and fumaroles - an opening in or near a volcano, through which hot sulfurous gases emerge and sublimate, or transform from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid state due to a stream of hot gases. In Greece and Egypt it was burnt as a fumigant to cleanse an area and also mixed into skin balms and anti-parasitics. The Bible refers to burning sulphur as brimstone, meaning Hell, perhaps a reference to its volcanic origins.
Sulphur is an energizing crystal which helps to remove negative thoughts, emotions and barriers to progress. It can enhance creativity and inspire imagination. It helps those who are prone to angry outbursts release their energy in appropriate ways. It allows us to be able to access our inner self and find our higher purpose whilst encouraging a flexible attitude.
Metaphysical: Sulphur stimulates the solar plexus chakra. It reminds us of our reason for being while giving us the energy and motivation to attain our deepest desires and goals. It cleanses the air with its poignant scent, and brings a sense of positivity to the darkest of spaces.
