The two crystalline forms of sulfur and some of their varieties according to Mitscherlich. Nos. 1-6 represent either natural crystals or crystals obtained by evaporation from dissolutions in carbon disulfide. Nos. 7-11 show crystals that emerged from melted sulfur (Mitscherlich, 1896BB25, Table IV). Since Gadolin (1871BB9) they have been known as the `rhombic' and the `monoclinic' form, respectively.  [article HTML]
