Cinnabar is a mercury sulphide mineral with a hardness of 2 to 2.5. Its crystal system is trigonal. It forms around volcanic vents and hot springs and may also occur in sedimentary rocks associated with recent volcanic activity.
It's main use: Cinnabar is a stone of prosperity, and it teaches us how to manifest energy into physical form. Often used in alchemy and magic to affect the transformation of energy. It increases the kundalini energy and encourages the flow of Chi throughout the body. Cinnabar is stimulating to the emotional body, assisting to release buried resentment, anger and fear. It is believed to aid with issues of infertility, sexual dysfunction and the causes of weight issues.
You will receive one specimen of cinnabar weighing approximately 30.10 - 31.22 grams. This is a very dense crystal, so the size will be smaller than that of a crystal of lesser density. The average piece we stock is roughly 1.5" x 1.5" x .5", but sizes and shapes vary.
Beware: Cinnabar can be very toxic! It contains mercury, which, if ingested in high doses, can cause severe gastrointestinal issues. Combined with other toxic crystals, the ingestion of cinnabar could even result in death. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
