Comments: Cinnabar has long been the source of red pigment for the Chinese. This specimen of cinnabar is encrusting quartz? The first year that I saw this specimen the miner was asking for a pot of gold.I went back the following year and yes, he still had it. I obtained it from him along with several other really nice specimens . This specimen entranced me from the moment that I saw it,When I returned back home I never stopped regretting that I did not own it. I have another one but it is damaged one of the protruding upright crystals has broken off.
