Dundas Minerals

The Dundas region in Tasmania, Australia is world-famous for a form of the very rare mineral crocoite (lead chromate).

Large specimens of this vivid orange mineral with splinter-like crystals are found at Dundas.

The unusual local geology brings together rocks rich in chromium and quartz veins rich in lead sulfide.
