Crocoite, Adelaide Mine, Zeehan, TAS, Australia
description: 8" tall. Ex collection of the late Frank Mihajlowits - the "Crocoite King" of Tasmania (referred to in "Gem and Crystal Treasures" by Dr Peter Bancroft). I bought it from Roger Wolfe of Zeehan during the Devonport Gemborree in 2010. This wonderful piece is a solid "slab" of intergrown and hopper crystals. Hence, this piece is not nearly as fragile as most specimens of this notoriously fragile species. The color of this is bright, hot and intense as illustrated.
