ID: CC8607

A superb miniature of rich buttery-tan, rhombohedral crystals of Siderite with a single, gemmy, blood-red pseudo-hexagonal crystal of Cinnabar perched on top. From Polster at Styrian Erzberg, Eisenerz, Styria, Austria, an ancient mine dating from around the end of the first millennium and the largest deposit of siderite in the world. The Cinnabar crystal measures 8 mm across and is 4 mm high from where it emerges in the Siderite. Under low magnification the Siderite is seen to be scattered with micro-crystals of Cinnabar in the octahedral form.  A stunning Cinnabar crystal from Styrian Erzberg.
