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.

  • A gorgeous, large, twinned crystal of cinnabar in a vug of dolomite crystals. This is the only locality information that I have for this specimen. Most modern specimen have been sawn to reduce matrix size, often sawn to extreme. This specimen has no saw cuts. Very nice specimen of this classic Chinese mineral.
