Where Science Meets Art

Bismuth Cities is a Pittsburgh based bismuth crystal growing project started & operated by Anthony Lee Arcuri.

Bismuth (Bi) is one of the elements from the periodic table of elements. It is a chemical element & pentavalent post-transition metal. Bismuth crystals or "hopper crystals" are formed when the element in its pure form is melted down to a liquid & then cooled carefully with the right timing & temperature control. When crystallized, bismuth is shown to form perfect straight lines, right angles, detailed step formations & intricate pyramid structures, often resembling futuristic/alien cities. Little is known as to how bismuth forms this way. Bismuth in lab-grade crystalline form is rare & even rarer in nature.

The color of the crystals is caused by a thin layer of bismuth oxide, that is formed when bismuth comes in contact with oxygen at the right temperature. The color can be any color of the rainbow, but in general some colors are more abundant than others.

As if bismuth wasn't already awesome at face value, it is also the most diamagnetic metal known to man. This means it repels magnetism enough to cause magnets to levitate. (example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRSgFvGXPYk )
