Bismuth Crystal in a Magnifying Box
The unusual and colourful nature of a Bismuth crystal makes it an ideal present for children, perhaps even as part of a science lesson – for which the magnifier is pretty handy too!
Bismuth is a naturally occuring element; 83 on the periodic table.
These pieces, however, are heated and formed in a lab; raw elemental Bismuth is not nearly as interesting and is more a flat grey metallic colour.
The shapes and colours produced by this process are almost alien, and make it a truly gorgeous display item or gift.
The box itself measures 25MM square approximately, the pieces within are between 10 and 20MM along their longest point generally.
