Crocoite is a 96 page Fictiönella published as part of the Lost Rocks (2017-21) artwork. Lost Rocks (2017-21) is a 5 year publishing project that invites 40 artists and writers to select a missing rock from a discarded Tasmanian rocks and minerals specimen board, formerly used for educating students of geology. Each artist is commissioned to research a missing rock or mineral, and compose a 96 page fictiönella in response, communicating new geological knowledge through creative, experimental and communicative texts. Crocoite follows the path of the discovery of Crocoite, Tasmania's mineral emblem, at the town of Heazlewood on the West Coast of Tasmania. The book investigates mineralogical and geological history, as well as the history of mining and prospecting in Tasmania.
