Amazing Mercury(II) Thiocyanate - Pharaoh's snake

Mercury Thiocyanate used to be made into "Pharoah's Serpent" fireworks similar to the "black snake" tablets you light and watch grow into a crusty snake. Unfortunately, it produces mercury vapors during the process so now the tablets are made out of a much safer sodium bicarbonate compound. I know. Still, wicked awesome if you can get your hands on some.
