A lovely example of rich red Cinnabar in Opal, from Nevada
Cinnabar has strong metaphysical properties and is known as a stone for manifestation and wealth creation and has been labelled the 'Merchants Stone'. It allows us to be assertive without becoming aggressive, and stimulates vitality and power.
The Opal is a water element and in Alchemy so is Mercury, therefore this crystal is a must for any one wanting to work with the water element.
Since Cinnabar is mercury based, caution should be used in the handling of it.
Specimen Rating : Intermediate Crystal Healer Specimen
The name is derived from the Middle Eastern word for 'Dragon’s Blood', and is highly appropriate for this mineral of the 'Dragon's Den'.
