The picture that Velella has uploaded as Safrron stigmas crocus sativa is for sure not of a Crocus sativus.
I guess that it is of a Crocus cancellatus, another species which is cultivated for their corms, which are eaten by some populations of Asia Minor. But I am not sure... it could also be of a form of Crocus speciosus, another species of Asia Minor, which is cultivated for its beautiful flowers.
Could you please let me know the location where you have taken this picture, so that I can confirm that it is Crocus cancellatus?
Best botanic regards,
