Item Description

Showy, dense solid small cabinet intergrown cluster of gemmy, glassy, highly lustrous, reddish-orange crocoite prisms, to 4.5 cm. Excellent older highly representative material from the famous Red Lead Mine dating to the 1960s-1970s. Crocoite from the Red Lead is typically stouter, than specimens from major recent finds at the nearby Adelaide Mine. Minor bruising on this piece is certainly only a modest detraction to this classic crocoite. Ex Kurt Hefendehl Collection.
