History : At the beginning, it was in China that cinnabar – red mercury sulphide – was used. Then, traces of it are found in Asia Minor and in Greece. The Romans imported it in Spain. It was a very expensive pigment. As a result, it is also one of the first pigments to be manufactured artificially from the 8th century. Nowadays, synthetic cinnabar is no longer compounded with mercury sulphide.
