Antimony

Antimony is a silvery-metal have a pronounced crystalline structure. Very brittle and easily powdered. A poor electrical conductor. Does not readily tarnish in dry air, but becomes covered with a film of oxide in moist air. All antimony compounds are highly poisonous. When molten antimony solidifies, it expands very slightly. Hence the metal is useful in alloys such as type metal, etc, from which fine and sharp castings are to be made. Chemical science has shown that antimony can exist in several different forms, such as yellow and black antimony. The metal is attacked by most mineral acids and is chemically closely related to arsenic on the one hands and bismuth on the other.
