Crocoite, Australia. Glass dome, small
A fundraiser for Australian wildlife.A gorgeous, naturally coloured specimen of crocoite from the Adelaide Mine, Dundas, Tasmania, Australia. Since the crystals are fragile, I have mounted this with a removable glass dome to protect it. I have not glued the dome in place so that you have the choice of how to display it and can secure the dome yourself if you wish. Crocoite is a lead ore, so it is sensible to wash one's hands after touching it.
3/4 inch (1.9 cm) in diameter at base, 13/16 inch (2.0 cm) tall withdome, 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) tall without dome.
