Bismuth crystals (element 83 on the periodic table) are hailed across the world as an incredibly beautiful crystal grown out of molten metal. Each one is grown by hand in our laboratory workshop, and these are the cream of the crop -exceptionally rare, pure gold-colored crystals. Bismuth naturally forms crystals in iridescent colors, but these are created through a very carefully controlled process to create amazing shiny solid gold colors, making exotic bismuth crystals even more exceptional.
These gold bismuth crystals make a perfect paperweight, gift for rock hounds, or conversation piece for collectors. Each piece of gold bismuth is completely unique in size and shape, and measures approximately 2.5″ in diameter. The crystals (known as hopper crystals) occur when one side cools faster than the other, causing the crystals to make sharp turns when growing, creating the incredible geometries you see. Each crystal is 99.99% elementally pure, and can be used for jewelry-making or for very large projects. Smaller pieces available as well.
Pictured are the contrasts to normal bismuth crystals (also available in our store). Please contact me with questions – we can grow any size of crystal, including up to 12″ long.
