If you watched the premiere episode of our online video magazine, Arizona Mining Review last week, you would have heard Tucson Gem and Mineral Society representative Peter Megaw wax eloquently about expectations of specular specimens of crocoite expected to be on sale from the recent (2010) find of a new pocket in a mine in Tasmania.
A note from Blue Cap Productions today, announced a video about the crocoite discovery in the Adelaide Mine. Many dealers are expected to be offering specimens at the upcoming show.
