   Two questions: 
   1. There are four scrolls, three of them biblical, with red ink that has
been identified as mercury sulfide or cinnabar.  Cinnabar has been found,
according to encyclopedias and other sources, in California, Peru, China
and the Trieste area.  Has a Middle East source ever been located?
   2. Have the scroll fragments from Zeelim and Kirbet Mird ever been
published? If so, where?
