Antimony - Sold

Antimony is a semi-metallic element isolated in ancient times, and used by alchemists. The name antimony is from the medieval Latin antimonium, and likely previously of Arabic origin.

Along Erskine Creek in California, antimony forms rounded masses with surficial alteration to white cervantite. This nodule has a 1 cm bruise revealing its metallic crystalline interior.
