Ex. University of Michigan Geology Department, #UM5929 from C. A. Noren, 1963 or older


This specimen is compsed mostly of massive Cinnabar in Calcite with a few crystals in places on the surface. The exact location from which this specimen was collected is unclear. I could find no information for a King Mine in Fresno County. However, Cinnabar was mined in the New Idira Mining District which straddles Fresno County and San Benito County (the now abandoned town of New Idria was originally in Fresno County but was later attached to San Benito County). Also, not far away is the city of King City. Additionally, C. A. Noren was a member of Fresno Mineral Society. He began collecting minerals in the early 1930s.

Condition: Composed of massive material.

Flaws: Essentially massive material.
