Glenbow has a fine selection of naturally occurring native elements (minerals containing only one kind of atom) with an emphasis on metallic and semi-metallic elements, but the collection also includes others such as sulphur. Specimens of the quality seen here are rarely found, considering the small amount of gold extracted (half an ounce) per ton mined.
