Additional Details
Description: Arsenic is a persistent toxin that occurs naturally in trace amounts in rocks, sediments, and coal. Small amounts of arsenic may be present in ground water or, less commonly, surface waters, especially where there is a nearby source of arsenic. The most widespread natural source of arsenic is pyrite, a common mineral composed of iron and sulfur, which can contain a small amount of arsenic in its structure in place of sulfur.
