About Element 83,
Bismuth is a little known metal, and is scarcer than silver in the earth's crust. In fact, there is currently only one mine in the world operated specifically for its extraction. The crystals form under a crucible of liquid metal as it slowly freezes. They come out of the molten metal the color of silver. Then they "choose" their own colors over the next few seconds, sometimes minutes. They gradually change from silver to gold to purple to cerulean, etc.
Bismuth is extraordinary and unique for several reasons. It is the most diamagnetic metal on earth, and can cause a magnet to levitate without the consumption of any energy. It is stable, perpetual and breathtaking to watch. See my "Sculpture" section for the most beautiful example in the form of kinetic art. It has the longest half life on any element, (billions of times the age of the universe) and is used in modern medicine. It is the only element that has been successfully transmuted into gold. (Search Nobel laureate Niels Seaborg of Berkeley University in California.) So, let's review. This amazing element defies gravity, heals the sick, creates order, even beauty out of chaos and is the only metal to fulfill the most sought after goal of alchemy.
