    Sulfur is the sixteenth most abundant element found in the Earth, at about .05%. Large amounts of sulfur are found underground, and is harvested with a technique known as the Frasch process. Another naturally occurring source of sulfur are volcanoes. Sulfur is released from volcanoes as a gas, but solidifies once it reaches the cold air on the outside.
