Mention "arsenic" and the first thing that comes to most people's minds is some sort of medieval poison. That's all thanks to arsenic trioxide and the many other compounds it forms, which throughout the ages have been fed to unsuspecting husbands in their soup. After a few weeks of this condiment they would wake up one day to a lethal bout of vomiting and diarrhea.... all the easier to pass off as food poisoning! Regular elemental arsenic is much less notorious. Sometimes it's found in its native state but is typically sold as amorphous gray or black powder. Getting shiny arsenic is waaaay more difficult because it's reactive in air. Here we have a sample of that difficult quest: a 1g ampoule of 99.9999% shiny shiny arsenic embedded in a 2x2 inch (50x50mm) block of crystal clear Lucite acrylic.
