Marek Chorazewicz's Photo Gallery

Sulfur Hole area

Sulphur Hole, Calico, Calico District, Calico Mts, San Bernardino Co., California, USA

In 2019 the Sulfur Hole was completely covered by debris from the rock layers higher up. Looks more like a mound than a hole. However, some good sulfates have been found from the hydrothermal chimney directly above the hole location, including the first arsenate from the locality, scorodite.
