Have any hunches as to whether you could use cinnabar in mineral form for this, or would you want to go with reagant-grade mercury sulphide?

I poked around a bit online, and the cheapest source I could find for 99% mercury sulphide was $80 for 50g at sigma aldritch. Easier on the wallet if you could get away with using crushed cinnabar instead. Or it might not be that big of a deal if the mercury is only getting added in very small quantities.
