Four separate specimens of mercury ore from the Pershing Quicksilver Mine east of Lovelock, Nevada, each approximately 30 x 30 mm, and each with deep red crystals of cinnabar (HgS). Cinnabar is most commonly found in massive form and rarely is discovered in crystals large enough to appreciate. These crystals are five or more millimeters across, well-formed with a high luster on the faces. The original collector noted that these were mined in 1982. State: Nevada City: Lovelock Date:
