Wonderful specimen of sharp, lustrous, deep-red cinnabar crystals showing some twinning on dolomite matrix from the classic Chinese locality of Tongren. Cinnabar crystals were among the very first fine specimens to be exported from China to the west, and have now become rather scarce on the market 40+ years after their first arrival. A fine and showy Chinese classic in great condition.
