Cinnabar, Tongren, Guizhou Province, China

I am very pleased to offer you these very beautiful, high quality cinnabar crystals on matrix. My eye was originally attracted to these specimens because of the rich, red colour of the crystals in contrast with the lighter quartz and dolomite crystals that line the cavities. I've seen many of these specimens over the years but mostly damaged, and of much lower quuality.
