Up in my attic I have a small hand sample-sized rock containing native mecury. It looks very similar to these photos. It's a vestigal remnant of my time decades ago as a field geologist. We all collected interesting rocks and minerals. I believe mercury is the only mineral that occurs in Nature as a liquid.

Is my attic now a Superfund site?

If I tossed it into my backyard, will I go to jail?
