Applying antimony in two situations need consideration:

1.Application of black collyrium for beautification is totally forbidden, except if used for treatment.

2. Application for beautification of collyrium which is not black, and its equivalent, without intention of beautification is not objectionable and carries no penalty. However, it is preferable to sacrifice a sheep, if the antimony was mixed with an unlawful substance.
