Crocoite is a mineral consisting of lead chromate and crystallizing in the monoclinic crystal system. It is identical in composition with the artificial product chrome yellow which is used as a paint pigment. Crocoite is commonly found as large, well-developed prismatic adamantine crystals, although in many cases are poorly terminated. Crystals are of a bright hyacinth-red color and translucent. Abundant masses with exceptional examples of crocoite crystals have been found in the Extended Mine at Mount Dundas as well as the Adelaide, Red Lead, West Comet, Platt and a few other Mines at Dundas, Tasmania.
Crocoite is a stone with a strong vibration that energizes your whole system, stimulates your creativity, and helps you to feel passionately about whatever has your attention. It is said to relate to the navel chakra and can stimulate/enhance intuition and creativity. It can stimulate recovery from physical, mental, or emotional distress.
