ALGAROT, or Algaroth, in the Arabian Chemistry, a Powder prepared of Butter of Antimony; being in reality no more than the Regulus of that Mineral, dissolved in Acids, and separated again by means of several Lotions with lukewarm Water, which imbibes those Acids. See REGULUS.This is also called Mercurius Vitae, or simply Emetic Powder.—It purges violently both upwards and downwards. See ANTIMONY.

By collecting all the Lotions, and evaporating two-thirds, what remains is a very acid Liquor, called Spirit of Philosophical Vitriol.
