At Machow the sulphur was deposited mostly as powder but also as coarsely crystalline masses and as free-growing crystals in the beautiful combinations with the minerals barite, calcite, and/or celestine.  The deposits was discovered by the geologist Pavlovski in 1954. The first sulphur from this open pit mine came out at 1969. This is a nice combination of sulphur and celestine.
