Crocoite was discovered in the late 1700s and occurs in the oxidized zone of lead deposits, which is sometimes associated with quartz and gold veins. It is renowned for its bright red to orange colour, slender columnar structure, and interlocking crystals. Only small amounts of very tiny prismatic crystals were found in Russia and throughout Europe until there was a major discovery at the Heazlewood lead-silver mine in Tasmania in 1895. When these magnificent crystals were found at the Tasmanian lead mines, crocoite quickly catapulted onto the international collector stage.
Because crocoite contains lead and chromium, it is somewhat toxic, so take care in handling one of these specimens. Exposure to sunlight may dampen the color and luster of the specimen.
