Late 19th century Hans Jaklin specimen labeled to be "Hg-Ziegelstahlerz" which means tile-steel-ore. Massive reddish cinnabar from Idria seemingly with some pyrite inclusions. The term steel ore refers to a more metallic lustrous ore type, tile ore for the more reddish. Jaklin obviously decided that the specimen has characteristics of both.
