Amorphous Antimony

A black powder produced by the electrolysis of a solution of tartar emetic in antimony trichloride. It consists of metallic antimony mixed with from 4 to 12% antimony trichloride.
Amorphous antimony is unstable, and will return to the more usual crystalline form of antimony with explosive violence when merely scratched or given a slight blow. On this account, it is often known as "explosive antimony."
