Sulfur is one of the few chemical elements that occurs naturally in uncombined form. 
It is easily identified by its translucent lemon-yellow color, softness, low density, and
the ability to burn.  (You really do not want to set it on fire.  Burning sulfur creates a
choking gas and the fire is difficult to put out.
