Australian Gems - Crocoite

Ordering Information * * * * * * * * Return to Gems Index Page

Dundas, Tasmania has long been famous for the Crocoite specimens that have it has produced. In the past countless numbers of fine Crocoite specimens were destroyed as this beautiful mineral was used as flux in the smelters.  However , today Crocoite from the only producing mine is commercially harvested for the collectors market and pockets of good specimens are very rarely found. The most famous mine was the Adelaide Mine which ceased operations in the late 1970's but has underwent a recent burst of sporadic production.

We hold a large inventory of Crocoite specimens and can supply Crocoite as individual specimens or by the flat.  Prices range from $20 to $20,000 per piece.
