Bulk Commercial Grade.
This is nice clean bulk grade antimony metal, in the form of broken polycrystalline lumps. I've melted and cast this stuff (see next two samples) and it's really quite an odd metal to cast, probably because it's right on the line between being a metal and not a metal. I think it must have a very strong surface tension, because when pouring it doesn't want to get started, and it sort of goes in fits if you don't keep pouring rapidly.
