Cinnabar on Dolomite
Chatian Mine, Fenghuang
Hunan Province, China
6.5 x 5 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $220


A very fine gemmy 1.3 cm main crystal of Cinnabar sits well in an exposed vug of crystallized Dolomite. It is rare to find this form, tabular and untwinned in any but micro crystals. The color is the richest possible red and is in good condition. Close examination shows a hairline crack in the prism but it seems solid and does not detract at all. This is far above the usual quality!
