Cinnabar, or cinnabarite, is a red-toned mercury(II) sulfide mineral. It is used to obtain mercury and has also been used as a red pigment throughout history.
It is associated with volcanic activities and alkaline hot springs. Cinnabar is found in many places with rich mercury deposits and has been used for cosmetic purposes since ancient times.
However, due to the toxicity of mercury, some precautions must be taken in modern use.
Cuprite is a copper mineral and has a color from deep red to sometimes almost black. It has a higher refractive index than other minerals such as diamond and Gallium arsenide and is rarely used in jewelry making.
The origin of its name comes from the Latin word cuprum for the copper component it contains.
Large, fine crystals from a unique deposit in Onganja, Namibia, have been used for jewelry making.
But the mineral's low hardness limits its value in the jewelry industry. Cuprite is mostly found as a secondary mineral in oxidized copper sulfide deposits and is often found in association with other copper minerals such as malachite, azurite, and chrysocolla.
Jasper is a variety of silica that is composed of various minerals and is usually red, yellow, green or rarely blue. Its name means "stained stone" and was popular in the ancient world as well.
It was used to make seals on the Minoan Crest around 1800 BC. Jasper was formed as a result of hydrothermal circulation millions of years ago.
It is not used as ore, but is preferred for making ornaments and jewellery.
Garnet is a group of silicate minerals that come in many colors and have been used as both jewelery and emery since the Bronze Age.
The most common color is deep red, but there are also rare blue garnets.
Hessonite garnet is called "gomed" in Indian literature and is one of the components of Navaratna in Vedic astrology. Garnets are broken into pieces like scalpels and separated from other transparent stones by their magnetic attraction.
The red squirrel is the common tree squirrel species of Europe and Asia. Surprisingly agile, these squirrels use their sharp, curved claws to climb tree trunks and branches.
The color and ear feathers of red squirrels, which take on a darker fur in winter, are important features that distinguish them from other squirrel species.
Unfortunately, numbers of red squirrels have decreased in the UK, Ireland and Italy in recent years due to habitat loss caused by humans and competition from gray squirrels from North America.
However, the population of red squirrels has remained stable in Scotland due to conservation efforts and an increasing population of pine marten.
The largest of the kangaroos and the world's largest even-toed animal, the red kangaroo inhabits large areas of Australia.
It distinguishes between the sexes with its long, pointed ears and square-shaped noses.
Males have reddish-brown plumage and are referred to as "Big Reds". Females are smaller and have gray-blue plumage. Kangaroos use many physical, physiological and behavioral adaptations to keep temperatures stable at 36 °C.
This works like a spring in their hind legs, allowing them to jump. In fact, male kangaroos can advance 8-9 meters in one leap and jump up to 3 meters high.

Other Red Things in Nature
Aurora is a natural light show that occurs in Earth's polar regions as a result of magnetospheric disturbances caused by solar winds. The aurora can be observed in various colors, in the form of curtains, rays and dynamic flares.
Taking its name from the Roman goddess Aurora, the aurora was described by ancient Greek poets as "color plays in the sky".
There are two types, aurora borealis (northern lights) and aurora australis (southern lights), and they can be seen especially in polar regions. Aurora can also be seen outside of Earth on some planets, moons and brown dwarf stars.
Sunrise refers to the moment when the sun appears in the sky by appearing on the horizon line. But it is actually perceived as such because of the Earth's rotation, not the rising of the sun.
Sunrise is not just a momentary event, it is an ongoing process after morning dawn.
The combination of the two is called sunrise when the center of the sun makes an angle of 50 minutes to the horizon. Sunrise changes throughout the year and according to the latitude, longitude, altitude and time zone the person is in.
When factors such as refraction and the size of the sun are taken into account, the duration of the day will be longer than at night.
Resembling bloody beasts, the red-bellied piranha, famous for its shimmering red belly in the water, is a species that lives in the rivers of South America. Although it has a predatory and frightening image, it actually has a mostly scavenger diet.
Adapted to warm freshwater sources, this species lives in the Amazon, Paraguay and Paraná rivers.
An interesting feature is that they may travel in search of breeding conditions due to increased rains at spawning time. The red-bellied piranha is a popular species among aquarium fish.
Sunset is when the sun sets in the sky due to Earth's rotation. This event takes place every day and varies according to the observer's location.
In some places, such as the north and south of the polar circle, it never sets or rises during the day on certain days of the year. It has different phases such as dawn, nautic dawn, astronomical dawn and dusk.
The length of the day and time of sunset depend on factors such as the Earth's tilt and rotation, its elliptical orbit around the Sun, and the Moon's rotation around the Earth.
Ultisol is a soil class commonly known as red clay soil. Its name is derived from the word "ultimate" because these soils are seen as the end product of mineral weathering in a humid, temperate climate without glacial action.
These are mineral soils with less than 10% erosive mineral content in the top layer of the soil, which do not contain limestone in the entire soil, and which have a base saturation of less than 35% in the soil. Ultisols are most commonly found in South America, Africa, and Asia, but are known as red clay soil in the southern United States.
These soils are often lacking in nitrogen, calcium and potassium and are not suitable for agriculture.
Autumn leaf color
Fall leaf colors are when the normal green leaves of some deciduous trees and shrubs change to different colors during the fall season, such as yellow, orange, red, purple, and brown.
This color change occurs as a result of the reduction of the chlorophyll pigment and the emergence of other pigments.
In Canada and the USA, "leaf peeping" tourism is a major economic activity at the time of autumn colours.
Carotenoids are pigments that are effective in leaf colors where orange, yellow and brown tones are dominant.
Eastern newt, a common salamander species in the eastern United States, produces tetrodotoxin, making it inedible for predator fish and crabs.
Living on land during their youth, they go through a stage called "red eft", which is bright orange in color. Adults that live under water have a duller color and have sticky skin. These animals can live up to 15 years and are also popular as aquarium pets.
The red-veined redfish or wandering (Sympetrum fonscolombii) is a species of dragonfly belonging to the genus Sympetrum.
