Cinnabar, also known as Cinnabarite, is a mercury sulfide mineral that usually crystallizes in the form of masses, but has been seen in the shape of tabular and rhombohedral crystals on a matrix. It’s the most important ore for extracting natural mercury and therefore is extremely toxic (we still recommend working with Cinnabar due to its amazing transformative qualities, just be careful when touching any part of your body and wash your hands immediately after use). Its color can range from a dull matte red to a crimson or scarlet color and sometimes even as dark as blood. Occasionally on Cinnabar ore one can find tiny globs of natural mercury which settles into crevices of the stone. This is extremely rare and not only adds value to your crystal, but also amplifies the energies it radiates.

Cinnabar Crystal Healing Properties

Cinnabar is believed to be a stone of prosperity. It may teach us how to manifest energy into physical form. It is often used in alchemy and magic to affect the transformation of energy. It is believed to increase the Kundalini energy and encourage the flow of Chi throughout the body. Cinnabar may be stimulating to the emotional body, assisting to release buried resentment, anger and fear. It is believed to aid with issues of infertility, sexual dysfunction and the causes of weight issues.

History and Uses

Cinnabar, also called Cinnabarite, gets its name from the Persian word meaning ‘Dragons Blood’. It is found as deep red crystals growing with Stilbite, which has a very supportive energy, or as tiny red spots included in Quartz. It has been named the Merchant Stone, as it is thought to attract wealth. In addition, it is believed to boost the immune system, and has been traditionally used to heal staph, boils or bacterial infections. Care should be taken when handling this stone because it is a form of mercury ore.

Geological Description

Cinnabar is a mercury sulphide mineral with a hardness of 2 to 2.5. Its crystal system is trigonal. It forms around volcanic vents and hot springs, and may also occur in sedimentary rocks associated with recent volcanic activity.
