Sulphur, also spelled as Sulfur, is a chemical element derived from volcanic action, which carries a negative charge. Its symbol is S and atomic number is 16 on the Periodic Table. The name Sulphur is derived from the Latin word “sulphur”, which means “to burn”. It forms transparent to translucent brownish or yellow crystals that are usually very well-formed. Sulphur can be found as a sublimate from volcanic gasses associated with Cinnabar, Realgar, and other minerals.

It’s also historically referred to as brimstone because of its association with the smell of rotten eggs. Sulphur crystals do not give off an odor, though, but it should not come in contact with any liquids.

It has been known since ancient times and was used in Indian alchemical practices. It was called shiliuhuang and used in Chinese medicine since the 6th century BC, then later as a component of gunpowder. In Greece and Egypt it was burnt as a fumigant and mixed into skin balms and antiparasitics. The Bible refers to burning Sulphur as brimstone, meaning burnstone, and associates it with Hell, perhaps a reference to its volcanic origins.

Traditionally, it has been used to detoxify the body, drawing out infections and relieving skin conditions, swelling and inflammation. Elemental sulfur is non-toxic, however, do not heat it or put it in water, as the by-products, sulphur dioxide and sulphuric acid can be harmful.
