A = 4.145(2) Å, c = 9.496(2) Å, Z=3. Cochineal-red, towards brownish red and lead-gray. Rhombohedral to tabular; granular to massive and as incrustations.

Simple contact twins, twin plane {0001}. G per 100 ml water Ksp at 25°C = 2 x 10. The name comes from (kinnabari). Word most likely applied by Theophrastus. Other sources say the word comes from the Persian.

Shangarf (Arabicized as zinjifrah), a word of uncertain origin (also compare, Sanskrit sugara). It was sometimes known as minium , meaning also "red cinnamon", though both of these terms now refer specifically to lead tetroxide.

HgS adopts two structures, i. The more stable form is cinnabar, which has a structure akin to that for HgO. Each Hg center has two short Hg-S bonds 2.36 Å.

, and four longer Hg---S contacts (3.10, 3.10, 3.30, 3.30 Å). The black form of HgS has the zincblende structure. Cinnabar is generally found in a massive, granular or earthy form and is bright scarlet to brick-red in color. It occasionally occurs in crystals with a non-metallic adamantine luster. Cinnabar has a rhombohedral bravais lattice.

And belongs to the hexagonal crystal system. Its crystals grow usually in a massive habit, though they are sometimes twinned. The twinning in cinnabar is distinctive, and it forms a penetration twin that is ridged with six ridges surrounding the point of a pyramid. It could be thought of as two scalahedral crystals grown together, with one crystal going the opposite way of the other crystal. Of cinnabar is 22.5, and its specific gravity.

In its symmetry and certain of its optical characteristics. Like quartz, it exhibits birefringence. It has the highest refractive.

Whereas the index for diamond is 2.42 and that for gallium(III) arsenide. Cinnabar mercury ore from Nevada, USA.

Generally cinnabar occurs as a vein-filling mineral. Associated with recent volcanic activity.

Cinnabar is deposited by epithermal. Solutions (those near surface and not too hot) far removed from their igneous source. It is associated with native mercury, stibnite.

Cinnabar is found in all localities that yield mercury, notably Puerto Princesa. At the foot of the Apuan Alps.

And in the Mount Amiata. ; the mountain Avala (Serbia); Huancavelica. ; and the province of Guizhou. Where fine crystals have been obtained. On the middle Kuskokwim River.

Red Devil was named after the Red Devil cinnabar mine, a primary source of mercury. Cinnabar is still being deposited at the present day from the hot waters of Sulphur Bank Mine. In California and Steamboat Springs, Nevada.

Mining and extraction of mercury. Apparatus for the distillation of cinnabar, Alchimia , 1570. Cinnabar has been mined since the Neolithic Age. It was mined both as a pigment Vitruvius. XXXIII, XXXVI-XLII and for its mercury content (Pliny HN; XXXIII, XLI), and it has been the main source of mercury throughout the centuries.

To produce liquid mercury (quicksilver), crushed cinnabar ore is roasted. Pure mercury separates from sulfur in this process and easily evaporates. Content, cinnabar can be toxic to human beings.

Though peoples in ancient South America often used cinnabar for art, or processed it into refined mercury (as a means to gild silver and gold to objects) the toxic properties of mercury were well known. It was dangerous to those who mined and processed cinnabar, it caused shaking, loss of sense, and death. Data suggests that mercury was retorted from cinnabar and the workers were exposed to the toxic mercury fumes. Was seen as an occupational disease to the ancient Romans, Mining in the Spanish cinnabar mines of Almadén. 225 km southwest of Madrid, was regarded as being akin to a death sentence due to the shortened life expectancy of the miners, who were slaves or convicts.

Cinnabar has been used for its color in the New World. Cinnabar was used in royal. During the peak of Maya civilization. Most dramatically in the Tomb of the Red Queen.

(600700 AD), where the remains of a noble woman and objects belonging to her in her sarcophagus were completely covered with bright red powder made from cinnabar. The most popularly known use of cinnabar is in Chinese carved lacquerware. A technique that apparently originated in the Song Dynasty. The danger of mercury poisoning may be reduced in ancient lacquerware by entraining.

The powdered pigment in lacquer. But could still pose an environmental hazard. If the pieces were accidentally destroyed.

In the modern jewelry industry, the toxic pigment is replaced by a resin-based polymer. That approximates the appearance of pigmented lacquer. Hepatic cinnabar is an impure variety from the mines of Idrija. In which the cinnabar is mixed with bituminous. Metacinnabarite is a black-colored form of HgS, which crystallizes in the cubic.

Synthetic cinnabar is produced by treatment of Hg(II) salts. Black, synthetic metacinnabarite, which is then heated in water. This conversion is promoted by the presence of sodium sulfide. Hypercinnabar , crystallised in the hexagonal.
