Antimony star target. (External Sample)
Antimony stars, formed when antimony metal cools in a circular pot, were popular with the alchemists. This is a very high-tech variation: It was made (and used) as a sputtering target. I'm not sure why someone would want an antimony sputtering target (used to coat something with antimony in a high vacuum chamber). But of course all you have to do is type "antimony sputtering" into google and you'll find out.
