All Crystals have healing and aligning properties
Cinnabar or cinnabarite (red mercury(II) sulfide(HgS), native vermilion, is the common ore of mercury.
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-metallicadamantine luster. Cinnabar has a rhombohedral bravais lattice, and belongs to the hexagonal crystal system, trigonal division. Its crystals grow usually in a massive habit, though they are sometimes twinned. The twinning in cinnabar is distinctive and 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. The hardness of cinnabar is 2–2.5, and its specific gravity .
Cinnabar resembles quartz in its symmetry and certain of its optical characteristics. Like quartz, it exhibits birefringence. It has the highest refractive power of any mineral. Its ean index for sodium light is 3.08 whereas the index for diamond is 2.42 and that forgallium (III) arsenide (GaAs) is 3.93.
Cinnabar is s a filling mineral associated with recent volcanic activity and alkaline hot springs. Cinnabar is deposited by epithermal ascending aqueous solutions (those near surface and not too hot) far removed from their igneous source.
The symbolism of cinnabar – “Dragon’s Blood”
Theophrastus (372 BC- 288 BC), a Greek naturalist, mentions the use of cinnabar as early as the 6th century BC. But early Chinese objects show traces as far back as the second millenium BC. The Romans mined cinnabar ores for mercury near the Gulf of Trieste and in Almaden, Spain. Several of these mercury mines are still in use today, 2500 years later.
The Chinese realized the problems of mercury poisoning early on and, during the Sung Dynasty (960-1279), developed a technique that mimicked the carving of real cinnabar called “tsuishu”. The core of many pieces of jewelry was made of wood, then usually 100 to 300 layers of lacquer were applied. Each layers was allowed to dry for one day and then lightly polished.
The symbolism of cinnabar or dragon’s blood
Cinnabar was recognized as a mystical powder because it is produced from volcanic and/or hot springs activity. The heat that results in the creation of cinnabar comes from the very heart (centre) of the earth. Its red colour depicts both the heart (blood) and burning embers of a fire. As a result, it has the ability to both foster positivity and cause destruction. The ‘magic’ of cinnabar is that it opens doors of opportunity for the future while putting negative experiences of the past to rest.
The History of ‘Dragon’s Blood’
According to the website, minerals-n-more.com, the word ‘cinnabar’ comes from the Persian word for ‘dragon’s blood.’ What we know today as a powerful powder has been mined since the days of the Roman Empire and it is still ‘harvested’ and used for both practical and metaphysical purposes.
In both Mesoamerica and South America, cinnabar was an important trade item. The Mayan may have considered cinnabar to be sacred because of its red color. Red was considered to be the color of the east, and may also have symbolized blood as well as life, though there is no solid evidence for this. The ancient Maya used cinnabar in their jewelry, set into incised decorations, as a paint pigment and as part of certain rituals such as funeral rituals and rituals involving fire. For rituals involving fire, Mayan priests would burn cinnabar to release the mercury.
