A volcanic sublimate or fumarolic sublimate is a mineral which forms directly from volcanic gases during an eruption or discharge from a volcanic vent or fumarole. Native sulfur is a common sublimate mineral and various halides, sulfides and sulfates occur in this environment associated with fumaroles and eruptions.
