Fine deep-red Cinnabar crystals on white dolomite from Tongren are known around the world as the premier examples of this Mercury mineral, and were actually some of the first high-quality mineral specimens to come out of China in the 1970's and 80's. Very few good specimens are produced from this classic Chinese locale today, and this excellent cabinet-size specimen is almost certainly from older finds. Ex- Proctor Family Trust Collection.
