What color is Cinnabar?
Cinnabar is a mineral that has a bright scarlet to brick-red color.
It is also known as mercury sulfide, and it is the main source of mercury metal.
Cinnabar has been used as a pigment for thousands of years, especially in China, where it was called vermilion.
Cinnabar can also be found in cosmetics, medicines, and lacquerware.
Cinnabar is not dangerous in its solid form, but it can release toxic mercury vapor when heated.
Cinnabar has a hardness of 2 to 2.5 on the Mohs scale, and a very high refractive index of 3.
Cinnabar crystals are rare and usually have a hexagonal shape.
