This small thumbnail piece consists of a calcareous base on which rest several tiny native Mercury globules. These globules do not exceed 1 mm in diameter and show the lack of morphology, the silvery-white color and the metallic luster of the specie. The liquid is accompanied by patches of cinnabar. The piece is affixed inside a plastic thumbnail box with a removable putty.
