27772: Crocoite and Gibbsite - $100
Adelaide Mine, Dundas Mineral Field, Zeehan District, Tasmania, Australia
Cabinet - 13.0 x 7.9 x 5.5 cm (5.1 x 3.1 x 2.2 inches)

This specimen consists of a jackstraw grouping of stout, deep red-orange crocoite crystals. On average these crystals are significantly fatter and longer than found on the typical Adelaide Mine specimen, reaching in this case 5 cm in length. In addition the crystals have good luster but (as is typical for large crocoite crystals) many are not terminated. Minor brownish gibbsite present throughout. Sits well for display without needing a base. This is a lot of red lead chromate for the price!
