Idrija, Slovenia (UNESCO)

This card arrived here for the WiP Hearts Desire Swap and was sent by Simona Trontelj. It shows the Mercury mine in Idrija. Together with the Mercury mine in Almadén, Spain the two places were inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage Site as Heritage of Mercury.
Mercury (Quicksilver) is a quite rare material and Idrija and Almadén are the two biggest mercury mines in the world.
