ArsenopyriteArsenopyrite

IRON ARSENIC SULPHITE, MISPICKEL

 

These lustrous metallic crystals are the most important source of arsenic. Homeopaths prescribe Arsenicum for food poisoning, psoriasis, thrush, catarrh, and hayfever. Chinese physicians give Arsenopyrite for skin disease, anaemia, and asthma. A curious feature of the crystals is that, when struck, they give off a strong smell of garlic.

 

The main source of arsenic, Arsenopyrite occurs across the world as clumps of silvery grey crystals. Arsenic is a good example of how a deadly poison can be medically useful, as it is now a commonly used homeopathic remedy.
