The reversible magnetization M has been carefully measured on a polycrystalline HgBa2CaCu2O6+δ sample (Hg-1212), with a superconducting transition temperature Tc{reversed tilde}119 K and a transition width ΔT{reversed tilde}2 K. The magnetization is field independent at 116 K, suggesting a significant role of thermal fluctuations. The value of this magnetization leads to an estimated superconducting volume fraction of 65% based on a quasi-2D thermal fluctuation model. After corrections for fluctuation and random grain orientation, the superconducting parameters of κ{reversed tilde}60, Hc2(0) {reversed tilde} 53 T, ξab(0) {reversed tilde} 25 Å, and λab(0) {reversed tilde} 1500 Å are obtained.
