Several dozen Crocoites extend from the dull, brown base of this hand specimen. These crystals do not tend to exceed 1.2" (3.0 cm) in length, and all appear to be damaged, or at least incomplete. Their monoclinic form is quite good, though none appear to have terminations, and all have the standard deep orange color and a bright, almost silky luster due to their striated surfaces. All are dimly translucent at best. The piece is affixed inside a plastic hand-specimen box with an adhesive putty.
