Four specimens from the Pershing Quicksilver Mine in the Antelope Springs District east of Lovelock, Nevada, approx 45 x 35 mm to 65 x 45 mm. Each piece has rare crystalline red cinnabar (HgS) and more rare metallic gray metacinnabar crystals (also HgS, but in a different crystal system). Though easily visible without a hand lens, the crystals are spectacular under even moderate magnification. Some ruins of concrete structures and processing equipment still exist at the site.
