Argentum nit.

Argentum nitricum - silver nitrate

The source of this remedy is silver nitrate, once known as Hell Stone or Devil's Stone because of its corrosive and sometimes lethal effect. Chronic silver nitrate poisoning causes the skin to turn permanently blue and damages the kidneys, liver, spleen and aorta. Acute poisoning - not uncommon in the days when silver nitrate was used to cauterize wounds after surgery - causes severe respiratory difficulties.
