This is the largest single bismuth metal crystal I've ever grown. It's presence has a power you would not believe. I can't take my eyes off of it!!! It has every color in your imagination.
A single crystal like this one is made up of 3 sets of parallel planes, one for each dimension. It flashes broad rays of light in unison and in 6 different directions.
Absolutely beautiful. This one is as it was when pulled from the crucible. No additions or alterations have been made. Only obstructions have been cut away.

What you get;
This cluster,7 inches or 20 cm across.
This wooden stand, though the crystal can stand on it's own in several ways.

You do not get the glass bell jar or "cloche", though we can arrange it.
Enjoy the view,


About Element 83,
Bismuth is a little known metal, and is scarcer than silver in the earths 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. It's awesome to watch, and it never gets old! It stops on it's own accord.
Bismuth's weight is similar to silver's. As an artist, scientist and technician, I am perpetually entranced with this metal. 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. It has the longest half life on any element, 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, yea even beauty out of chaos and is the only metal to fulfill the most sought after goal of alchemy. Can you understand my fascination.
