Tin was known to the ancients. It is a solid at room temperature, and it has two forms: white tin, which is a metal, and black tin, which is a non-metal. Black tin is the product from so-called "tin sickness", where white tin converts to black tin at low temperatures and causes tin metal to break apart and disintegrate into powder.
