Here is an exceptional and complex double terminated, twinned, deep red cinnabar crystal on a nest of bright white barite crystals on basalt from Tongren, Guixhou Province, China. The crystal has some bruising, but that is to be expected with a crystal of this size. The crystal itself measures 1.5cm x .8cm and is a very deep red that contrasts nicely with the white barite. An extraordinary example , this is a miniture display specimen that will be a wonderful addition to your fine mineral collection.
The specimen measures approx. 5.5cm x 4cm x 3.5cm, and weighs approx. 110 grams.
