Crocoite on Gibbsite
Adelaide Mine Dundas Mineral Field, Zeehan District,West Coast Municipal
Tasmania, Australia
9.5 x 6 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Spring 2020

Slender bright red-orange crystals of Crocoite rise above a contrasting white Gibbsite matrix. A choice specimen with most crystals in good shape, terminated and a few with hoppered form. Minimal damage as is almost inevitable with this sort of fine needles, but most is not visible by naked eye. From a 2014 pocket, this has the color and luster that is most desired, the needles are up to 1.6 CM.
