THE BEAUTY OF BISMUTH
Bismuth is a metal scarcer than silver in the earth's crust. However, its weight is comparable to silver’s. It’s also the most diamagnetic metal on earth and can cause a magnet to levitate without the consumption of any energy. It’s stable, perpetual and breathtaking to watch! The colors you get from it are absolutely unmatched. As it freezes, the crystal forms itself and colors itself as it is first exposed to oxygen. It’s remarkable in the extreme! It starts out the color of silver and then "chooses" its own colors over the next few seconds, sometimes minutes. Gradually, the crystal changes from silver to gold to purple to cerulean, etc. It stops on its own accord.
As a scientist and craftsman, I’m fascinated with the astounding properties of bismuth and love to share that with you. Please check out my shop story to see more beautiful photos of these crystals and read how it all comes together.
