Has anyone here ever done the reaction of cinnabar with nitre?

Is this a process from RAMS or something? More details needed.

You mean, fixation of niter by cinnabar ?

If you do, you'll probably have a kind of black salt. Horribly smelling once it is a bit humid.

I've never done this, but I dabbled a bit with hepar sulfuris on metals and it is pretty the same idea.
