Cinnabar is a brilliant red stone found as veins in numerous environments. Despite its appearance (showing up as £ unmined and * mined), it is not a usable ore.

In Real Life[edit]

Cinnabar is a mineral of mercury sulfide (HgS), and has been used throughout history both for the ease in which it can be made to release its elemental mercury, and for use as a red pigment in paint.
