Antimony exists in nature in four states, metallic, oxide, sulphuret and a sulphuretted oxide. It is found principally in France and Germany. Nearly all commercial antimony is extracted from the native sulphuret, by fusion, whereby the powdered ore is gently heated while stirred by an iron rake.  It is then mixed with tartar and heated further until red hot to produce glass of antimony. This preparation is then added, while hot, to water and wine to produce Wine of Antimony.
