This very small specimen consists of a few small globules of native Mercury that line some tiny cavities in a quartz-based host rock. The host rock has the deep red coloration that signifies inclusions of cinnabar, and parts of it are colored a pale green, though I do not know why. The Mercury has the standard silvery color, metallic luster, and liquid tendencies that one expects of this element.
