What Is the Average Cost of Vermilion? Average Vermilion Price

Vermilion is an opaque orange-red pigment. The naturally occurring pigment is known as cinnabar. Today, vermilion is most commonly artificially produced by reacting mercury with molten sulfur. It is a good pigment for protecting iron and steel and is, therefore, often used in paints. It is commonly adulterated because of its high cost. Certain other materials are sometimes called vermilion and among them is imitation vermilion, prepared from a combination of red lead or basic lead chromate and certain other chemicals. As pure sources of cinnabar are rare, natural vermilion has always been expensive. The average cost of vermilion is $50 per 100 grams.
