An anomalous magnetic-field-independent contribution to the Hall resistance of mercury selenide crystals with a small iron impurity has been discovered in room-temperature experiments. This contribution has been shown to be due to spontaneous polarization of the electron system of hybridized impurity states. The theoretical explanation of the effect based on the thermodynamic description of dissipationless electron current in the spontaneously polarized electron system has been proposed.
