    I find it odd that the most likely explanation is not even mentioned. There are naturally-occurring deposits of cinnabar (mercuric sulfide) throughout the southwestern U.S. - and with the Grand Canyon cutting through so many layers of strata - I can easily see a small vein of cinnabar being exposed.
