A plate of opaque, crystalline dolomite hosts two deep silvery-red cinnabar crystal groups, the largest of which measures 9 mm. Both cinnabars are in excellent condition, and appear deep translucent red in transmitted light. A few, small water-clear quartz points add accent. The specimen sits perfectly for display on its naturally flat base.
