An element frequently ranked among the metals, but now usually regarded as non-metallic. Both the amorphous and crystalline forms of a. are known. In the crystalline form it has a steel gray color and a specific gravity^ of 5.73. A. usually volatilizes directly, without fusion, giving off a lemon yellow vapor of garlicky odor, but under increased pressure it can be melted and then solidified into a crystalline mass. Its chemical symbol is As; its atomic weight is 75. The salts of a. are tonic and alterative. They are all poisonous.
