Item details

These little bismuth crystals would be great for jewelry making, particularly wire wrapping. But of course, it could be used in a variety of crafty ways :) They could also be a cute little decor accent.

Your bismuth crystal will be chosen at random from my current stock. Each piece of bismuth varies a bit in size, shape, and color, but all are of equal quality.

If you have a strong preference regarding the shape or color, let me know in a comment on your order and I will try to find a piece that fits what you're looking for!

Ifyou want to know exactly what your piece looks like, I'd recommend using one of my other bismuth listings:

^I often have bismuth listings in which you know the exact piece that you're going to get.

For this listing though, you get a 20% discount compared to my individual bismuth listings.

***Bismuth is a naturally occurring metal, but the crystal structure is human induced***

Bismuth crystals, like this one, do not naturally form in nature.

Bismuth as an element and as a metal is totally natural, but in nature the metal can never cool slowly enough to form these beautiful crystals.

Bismuth has a fairly low melting point compared to other metals (520.6 Fahrenheit or 271.4 Celsius), and when cooled steadily and slowly, the metal forms this "stair-step" crystal structure because the growth rate of the crystal is higher on the edges than toward the center.

Oxide particles in the air bond to the surface of the crystal giving it beautiful rainbow coloring.

This bismuth crystal was formed in a laboratory in Germany.

Bismuth is a calming stone, and pushes one in the right direction to promote personal transformation. It also prevents feelings of isolation.
