Crocoite is a lead based crystal that was used to make the pigment Chrome Yellow. It was first discovered in Russia, but the best, well formed crystals come from Tasmania. Its name loosely translates from the Greek for saffron, in relation to its colour, although it was originally and creatively named Red Lead Ore.
