STIBNITE is an antimony sulfide mineral. Stibnite occurs in hydrothermal deposits. It belongs to the Orthorhombic crystal system. Hardness is 2.0 on the Mohs scale. Stibnite is an important ore for antimony.
The largest application for antimony is as an alloy with lead and tin. Alloys of lead and tin with antimony have improved properties for solders, bullets, and plain bearings. Antimony compounds are prominent additives for chlorine and bromine-containing fire retardants found in many commercial and domestic products. An emerging application is the use of antimony in microelectronics.
