In this video, I will be refining mercury metal from mercury sulfide (cinnabar). This is a chemical method, which is safer than the typical heated one.

It is a follow-up to this video: https://youtu.be/S4T57SFntIs

This process was developed by Plante1999 from the Sciencemadness forums (https://goo.gl/W2LdWM)
