The preparation and unit cell parameters of a novel fullerene-containing compound, (C 60) 6S $_{80}\cdot$C 2HCl 3, is described. The compound is orthorhombic with a = 10.512(6) Å, b = 21.072(26) Å  and c = 38.985(50) Å. The UV-VIS-NIR-IR spectra of the compound are analysed. It is concluded that the new sulfur-fullerite is true van der Walls solid without strong interactions between the constituent molecules.
