History and Uses

Crocoite was first discovered in the 18th century in the Ural Mountains of Russia. Its name is derived from the Greek word “krokos,” which means saffron, due to its striking orange-red color. It gained attention for its unique crystal formations and vibrant hue, making it a sought-after specimen among mineral collectors and enthusiasts.

Over time, crocoite deposits were also found in other locations around the world, including Australia (where some of the finest and most well-known crocoite specimens are found), the United States, Namibia, and various European countries.

Crocoite is highly prized by mineral collectors and enthusiasts for its vivid color and unique crystal formations. The long, slender crystals, often described as resembling red needles, make crocoite specimens visually striking and sought after for display in collections and museums.

Due to its lead content, crocoite poses health risks if mishandled, and precautions should be taken to avoid skin contact or ingestion. Its use in jewelry or practical applications is limited by its toxicity.

Geological Description

Crocoite is a mineral that belongs to the chromate mineral group. It has the chemical formula PbCrO4, indicating its composition of lead (Pb), chromium (Cr), and oxygen (O). Its vibrant orange-red color is a result of the presence of chromium in its chemical structure.

The mineral has a hardness of about 2.5 to 3 on the Mohs scale, which means it is relatively soft and can be easily scratched. Crocoite has perfect cleavage in one direction, therefore it can be split into thin sheets along this direction.

Jewellery Care & 1 Year Warranty

In jewellery form, some crystals are more hardy than others. For everyday wearers, we recommend crystals that fall in the Quartz family or have a Moh's hardness level of over 5.5-6. Avoid excessive water exposure, especially in pools or the ocean and any harsh chemicals. Delicate crystals like Amber, Moonstone, Opal, and iron-based meteorites need gentle handling due to potential discolouration or structural risks. Store safely, and clean with care. Rest assured that our 1-year jewellery warranty covers any manufacturing defects. With proper care, we expect your pieces to last many years to come. In our 18 years of business, we still wear some treasures from our original collection! Learn more about our warranty and care guide here.
