Crocoite from Adelaide Mine, Tasmania, Australia


A very striking specimen of brilliant orange-red Crocoite from Tasmania. It consists of countless VERY LUSTROUS crystals of stunningly colorful Crocoite artfully positioned on a nicely contrasting beige colored matrix rock. This is a visually striking, large-cabinet display specimen that exhibits numerous Crocoite crystals displaying an unusual orange color and greater than average TRANSLUCENCY for this mineral. There is an old fracture running diagonally across the front-face – this has “self-healed” and is full of small Crocoite crystals, and I assure you that it is quite SOLID. A ONE OF A KIND specimen that I obtained from a friend who recently acquired it as part of an old collection. A nice large size and attractive all the way around, with almost wall-to-wall coverage of densely-packed crystals, and of a quality that is definitely several cuts above the rest of the pack.
