Several small native Mercury globules rest atop the dull brown base of this thumbnail specimen. These globules are quite tiny, measuring less than 2 mm in diameter and show the classic silvery-white color, metallic luster, and complete lack of form of this liquid metal. The globules rest amid a thin cinnabar crust. The piece is affixed inside a plastic thumbnail box.
