The crocoite
Author:Network sources Source:Network sources Date:2013-03-01

With its beautiful deep orange-red color, Crocoite is a mineral that fascinates collectors. It was first found in Russia and later in other European localities, but only sparingly and in very small crystals. The Australian discovery on the island of Tasmania took this mineral to a whole new level when large, brilliant, well-formed crystals larger and more abundant then any other localities were found. The original crystals from this discovery yielded phenomenal crystals and aggregates, although excellent material is still coming out of these mines as they are now being mined for specimen production.

Crocoite is generally a fragile mineral and care should be taken when handling.
