All In Red - Vintage Silver Cinnabar & Coral Necklace. This gorgeous necklace is crafted from a silver metal, most likely stainless steel. Featuring a genuine carved cinnabar medallion, genuine red coral, Art Deco designing and quality work. The necklace is adjustable and is threaded with wonderful rich red coral, which matches up to the cinnabar beautifully. The cinnabar has lovely floral carvings on both sides and has the most stunning red colour. This Vintage piece has an ancient feel in the Art Deco Style, truly a unique gift or wonderful addition to any jewelry collection.
Note: The word Cinnabar most likely comes from ancient Greek kinnabari, later romanticized to cinnabaris. Cinnabar, the most common ore of oxidized mercury found in nature, occurs in granular crusts or veins associated with volcanic activity and hot springs.
