Cinnabar on Dolomite


Out of stock

These specimens came out in the 1980’s from the Chatian-Fenghuang regions Hongshuidong and Masaxi Mines (Moores Compendium) . The Mercury bearing areas of China revealed what were some of the earliest specimens to come from the country. We obtained a couple of flats out of an old dealer stock and I offer some here. This piece has wonderful tabular crystals with excellent color.
