Merc solub is extracted from cinnabar ore, which is found in volcanic rocks. Commercially it is extracted for a variety of industrial purposes. Mercury is used in thermometers and was at one stage a major ingredient in tooth fillings.
It was used in mainstream medicine until it was found, in its natural form, to have adverse side effects. Since homeopathy dilutes to the point that not a molecule remains, it is safe and we can reap all of the healing benefits. Mercury was found to have very specific properties within homeopathy, and out of that discovery came the homeopathic remedy of merc sol
