Why did the use of antimony-bearing alloys in Bronze Age

While discussions abound about the exploitation of mines, mining settlements, possible origins of artifacts, resources of copper, arsenic, and especially tin to improve our knowledge about Anatolian Bronze Age mining and metallurgy, uncommon alloying practices including the use of antimony, nickel, or lead have long remained in the shadows of

Antimony Mining Encyclopedia of Arkansas

Antimony (Sb) is a hard, brittle, silver-white metal with a relatively high specific gravity (6.69) and a relatively low melting temperature. Antimony is a constituent in some alloys. The presence of this metal hardens the alloy, lowers the melting point, and decreases contraction during solidification. The metal’s main use is to impart stiffness and hardness to lead alloys. Antimony

Aug 01, 2020 Abstract. Antimony (Sb) is considered a rare material in the archaeological record, found only in unusual circumstances. Nevertheless, antimony minerals were an important resource for several millennia, used in metallurgy and to opacify or decolour glass and glazes. In this way, Sb spread throughout the known world from the Chalcolithic onward.

Antimony

Antimony is a chemical element with the symbol Sb (from Latin: stibium) and atomic number 51. A lustrous gray metalloid, it is found in nature mainly as the sulfide mineral stibnite (Sb 2 S 3).Antimony compounds have been known since ancient times and were powdered for use as medicine and cosmetics, often known by the Arabic name kohl. Metallic antimony was also known, but it was

Mineral Commodity Profiles: Antimony

Domestic production of antimony as a principal mine product (that is, from antimony ores) was as high as 5,000 t in 1943; in 1948, it peaked at about 5,900 t. Most of the production in those years came from the Yellow Pine Mine, in Idaho. After the early 1950s, production as a principal product dropped well below 1,000 metric tons per year (t/yr).
