Cinnabar is very important to Chinese culture, medicine, and qigong. For example Cinnabar Field is the energy center located in the lower abdomen used in qigong, taichi, and Chinese medicine. The ancient Chinese Daoists were fascinated with the mineral. In its natural state it was deep red and dry (pure Yang). When heated, it became silver and liquid (pure Yin). Cinnabar became a symbol of transformation and healing.
