Comments:Cinnabar has long been the source of red pigment for the Chinese.This specimen of cinnabaris 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 also which is damaged, one of the protruding upright crystals has broken off.
