Cinnabar or Vermillion is the naturally occurring mineral mercury sulphide (HgS). Inorganic mercury such as the mercury found in cinnabar is the least toxic form of mercury and has a long history in traditional Chinese medicine, ancient Roman makeup, Hindu Bindi forehead marking and Sindoor hair marking but should still be considered toxic and handled with care, especially in powder form.  The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention states:

Inorganic Mercury: When eaten in large amounts, some inorganic mercury compounds can be very irritating and corrosive to the digestive system. If repeatedly eaten or applied to the skin over long period of time, some inorganic mercury compounds can cause effects similar to what is seen with long term mercury vapor exposure, including neurological disturbances, memory problems, skin rash, and kidney abnormalities.

There’s an informative article with references on owlcation.com stating:

There is uncertainty about how poisonous cinnabar is and about the amount required to produce dangerous effects. Scientists generally recommend that we limit our exposure to all mercury compounds, however, including inorganic mercury.
People using cinnabar are warned not to inhale cinnabar dust and to be very careful when breaking the mineral in case dust is created. The mineral mustn’t be ingested or licked. In addition, it mustn’t be heated, which might trigger mercury vapor release. Opinions are divided about whether cinnabar is safe to touch. Mercury (ll) sulfide can be absorbed through the skin, but how much is actually absorbed from a lump of cinnabar mineral is unknown. Since there are unanswered questions about the mineral’s safety, it’s best to wear gloves when handling it.

    Marie’s paints are good quality for their price. I was glad I could find it on this site. It came perfectly packaged along with some other items I ordered. Thank you!

    My first encounter with gamboge… I cannot compare this yellow to anything I have seen before. The paint chip itself dissolves easily, allowing a couple drop of water on the paint resulted in an intensive colour. When applying on a layer of darker (曙红) petal to paint the stamen it doesn’t cover to well, so it’s worth to leave a free spot for that part if possible.

    Las doce botellitas de pigmentos en realidad se pueden transformar en infinitos tonos si se mezclan con mimo y paciencia entre si. He conseguido una paleta con mas de 30 nuevos tonos realmente bonitos.
    Muy satisfecho con el producto, la presentación, el rendimiento del mismo, y sobre todo, la filosofía que encierra todo ello.
    Pura alquimia. Un placer para los 5 sentidos.
    Para regalo, el asombro está asegurado. Para uso propio…el deleite idem de idem.
    Incluso compraré botellitas sueltas de ciertos colores. Toda una ventaja.
    Gracias a INKSTON. ¡¡¡¡
