Very colorful large cab of quartz, calcite, and red cinnabar. Yes, the reds are very red like the photo. 

VERY choice cab for your collection. These stones are hard to find and very few are as nice or as unusual as this one.  Bright red cinnabar and a most unusual pattern in this stone.  Two separate seams meet near the center of the stone make for a very unusual stone.  The smaller seam is a cream color and the larger seam is nearly snow white with fire engine red streaks!

This  is one of the most unique stones I've offered with the two different seams in matrix. My price is very reasonable for such an unusual example of this material.

This stone does have a few minuscule surface pits on both sides.

Myrickite was first discovered by Francis Marion "Shady" Myrick, a famous gemstone prospector in Death Valley. The red in Myrickite is cinnabar and It has also been found in Mexico, Arizona and Nevada. This is Arizona material it's a little different that the original Death Valley material and much nicer IMO.
