A flat, gossan matrix plate hosts a rich coverage bright orange-red, translucent to opaque crocoite crystals. Many of the crocoite crystals rise up from the matrix, and the longest is 2.1 cm. Many of the crystals are terminated, and some are not. (This is typical because crocoite often grows across pockets resulting in contacted terminations, and because crocoite is rather brittle.) Displays nice either flat, or up on a stand. A fine and affordable splash of color for your mineral cabinet.
