Extremely tiny grain, or crystalline aggregate, of dark red poyarkovite. This very rare, 5-locality species, chemically dimercury chloride oxide, readily darkens in light and this grain is a proof. A larger grain, shown in the child photo, is completely black (although I suppose some even more tiny unchanged remnants may reside in its interior).

A larger grain of poyarkovite, completely black due to light-induced alteration. I suppose some even more tiny unchanged remnants may reside in its interior. This very rare, 5-locality species, chemically dimercury chloride oxide, readily darkens in light and this grain is a proof.
