Cinnabar is a famous Chinese craft and jewelry material that was traditionally created by painting multiple layers of lacquer onto an item and then carving the layers of lacquer into intricate patterns. The name cinnabar comes from the mercury that gave it its red coloring. Today, cinnabar beads are formed dyed red resin instead of harmful mercury. While most people think of cinnabar as being red, today it comes in red, black, blue and white.
