silver fulminate is a high explosive. I believe it was the first one discovered but I may be wrong about that last part. If I remember my information correctly it is still put in those little snap poppers that can be bought in places with fireworks. It's highly reactive, especially by accident and so unpredictable and sensitive that a person would more likely blow themselves up if they tried to consolidate a pile from those poppers. Though it doesn't sound too hard to make if a person understands the effects of acids on metals and how compounds are generally named.

NO --------------- I know of no pure carbon forms that are explosive (maybe there is some strained crystal structures). Though carbon could be explosive if a fine dispersion of it in air was ignited.
