Abstract A reinvestigation was undertaken of phase relations in the Ag-Sb system by studying natural Ag-Sb samples. The detected compositional ranges of antimonial silver and dyscrasite are in fair agreement with the synthetic system. On the contrary, allargentum does not show the wide compositional range reported for the synthetic system, but an almost constant composition near the theoretical formula Ag6Sb.
