BISMUTH CRYSTALS

Beautiful crystals of the element
bismuth, grown artificially


Bismuth is a metal that occurs naturally but these crystals have been grown artificially where they have adopted an unusual ‘stairstep’ crystal structure.

On contact with air, bismuth oxidizes to form an attractive coloured iridescent coating.  It is a very heavy metal, almost as heavy as lead.

Bismuth has many uses including in medication.

Caution: Bismuth crystals sometimes have sharp corners and should be handled with care.
