Bismuth is a native element. Peru is one of the world’s major sources. Scarce as silver, more rare than platinum, heavier than lead- it is classified as a semi-precious semi-metal. Bismuth is used in both medicine and cosmetics. This mineral helps cover and protect us.
When bismuth crystalizes rapidly, the “hopper crystal” formations seen here are created. This intricate crystal structure shimmers with iridescent colors.
