Antimonium Crudum.

Native Sulphide of Antimony. SbS3.

The sulphuret of antimony, a mineral, native in France and Germany, found also in the United States, see Stibnite of Dana, p. 29. What is to be had in the shops is obtained by simple fusion of the ore. Used by the ancients for dyeing hair and eyebrows. First known as a sulphuret by Hohenheim Paracelsus (not the imaginary person called Basil Valentin), in 1430. Since then given by the Anti-Galenists in numerous preparations and forbidden by the Acadmie Franaise, 1566 until 1666, and in later times considered inert because not soluble.

Proved by Caspari, in 1826, edited and published by Hartlaub, in 1828. Classed among his antipsorics by Hahnemann, with many additions, in 1835.
