Remarkably sizeable, matrix specimen of volcanic rock hosting a couple of dozens of metacinnabar crystals protruding from etched calcite. The specie appears as crude, jet black cuboctahedrons with strong metallic lustre, sometimes rounded and with some vivid to dark red tips (cinnabar). A couple of cinnabar crystals are also present. 

Very large for this classic locality, it comes with an excellent color contrast and coverage.
