I got a piece of Native elemental sulfur for my rock/element collection...
Noticed it has a characteristic burnt match or gun powder smell..
The smell is weak and doesn't bother much, but it will remain on my hands for several hours.
- What compound is this aroma exactly? H2S, SO2, the Sulfur itself?
- Is Elemental Sulfur safe to touch and handle with bare hands?
- Is Sulfur absorbed by the skin?
