Stibnite, also known to many as antimonite, is a gray sulfide mineral. It gets its name from the Greek word stibi, derived from the Latin word stibium. This mineral has a very similar chemical structure to that of arsenic. Stibnite had been used as an eye cosmetic near southern Europe since 3000 BC. This mineral is often associated with realgar, cinnabar, galena, pyrite, marcasite, calcite, barite, chalcedony, and many others.
