Somebody needs Cinnabar, HgS ?


Hey guys, I will order some Cinnabar from China as it´s like six times cheaper than in Europe. The material is said to have 97% HgS min.
Does somebody need some, I can order more. 100Eur for 1kg in China plus shipping, the final price depends if the costoms get their greedy hands on the bill.
I can give away any amount startiong from 50g but I need to know before I place the order.

50g for €5 is an interesting price, check your customs rules, here in italy i need to pay 22% of taxes plus border taxes if the total value of the package is over €45 (if not a gift), if where you live it's similiar you could have to add another €50 to your 100 excluding shipping costs.
i could be interested for 50g, let me now about added costs

I placed an order for 3kg, total price incl shipping is about 400Eur. Of course I will try to avoid to pay a custom fee but that´s not in my hands. I hope them to believe red powdered rock is cheap haha.
If the customs don´t catch it the price for 50g is close to 7Eur + a few bucks shipping to italy.
But I will check the quality before I give even one gram away, it is the fist time I am ordering from this company and although I never had a bad experience on alibaba, you never know.

I think I read somewhere that some one got some cinnabar but it was nowhere near the advertised % like instead of 90% it was like 7% but then I think you'd kind of notice if your dark red powder wasn't completely dark red powder.unless it can be mixed with some other cheaper dark red powder.like red soil.off eBay not Alibaba though.with Alibaba I think the money is held in escrow until you've said that the package was received and is what it's supposed to be.unlike with ebay.

Yes, it´s held in escrow on alibaba. Also I always chet the companys prior to contact them, always want pictures aswell as a COA if possible.
I really don´t like to loose money because of fraud.

Cinnabar takes appx a month to arrive.

WARNING


I purchased sodium nitrate from DrScrabs about one week ago. I was supposed to receive a tracking number last Tuesday which would have indicated the item had been sent But I have not received a tracking number or any other communication. I have sent him two emails but no response.

It may be he is ill or incapacitated for some reason.

Has anyone else had problems buying from him ?

PS: I should have made the transaction through ebay more expensive but almost no risk.

Thank goodness for Fleming and the fungi.

I am sorry I was ill. I shipped it on friday and already sent u an U2U. There is no tracking number as it was sent as a xxl letter.
And you ordered KNO3 and not cinnabar. The cinnabar is not even here yet.

For god's sake !

Same as for mercury, look for sellers in Spain !
46 Euros / kg from professional sellers
Available in 25kg bags.

If you're looking for the mineral in rock form (and not for it's Hg content) check local equivalents of eBay in Spain and be amazed.

If you want something that comes from a mine, look where the mines are :)
