Cinnabar is a mineral that has a bright scarlet to brick-red color, depending on its form and purity.

It is also known as vermilion, a pigment that was used in ancient times for painting and cosmetics.

Cinnabar is composed of mercury (II) sulfide (HgS), and is the most common source of elemental mercury.

However, cinnabar is also toxic, as mercury can cause various health problems if inhaled or ingested.

Cinnabar can occur in different forms, such as crystals, granules, or masses.

It has a hexagonal crystalline structure that belongs to the trigonal crystal system.

It exhibits birefringence, which means that it splits light into two rays with different refractive indices.

Cinnabar has a very high refractive index of about 3.2, which is second only to diamond among minerals.

It also has a hardness of 2.0 to 2.5 on the Mohs scale, and a specific gravity of about 8.1.

Some possible additional sentences to complete the response are:
  • Cinnabar is named after the Greek word kinnabari, which may have referred to several red substances.
    It was also called minium in Latin, meaning red cinnamon.
  • Cinnabar has been used for its color since ancient times, especially in China, where it was carved into jewelry and seals.
    It was also used by the Olmec and Maya civilizations in Mesoamerica, and by the Romans and Greeks in Europe.
  • Cinnabar is still mined today, mainly in China, Spain, and the United States.
    However, its use as a pigment has declined due to its toxicity and environmental impact.
    Instead, synthetic alternatives, such as cadmium red and quinacridone, are preferred.
