A classic, old-time and very showy specimen of a very sharp, twinned, 1.0 cm, blood-red cinnabar crystal aesthetically set on massive cinnabar matrix from the historic mines at Almaden, Spain. A brighter red, secondary cinnabar overgrowth partially coats the sharp crystal. No damage. Long considered some of the best worldwide cinnabars. Ex. Marilyn Dodge collection.
