One of my bismuth crystal creations.

I make each one myself.

You can visit my eBay store here:
stores.ebay.com/Bismuth-and-Be…

For weight and dimensions, please visit my store. Those specifics are in each crystal listing's description.

I ship domestic and international.

Just ask first, and we can go from there.

Bismuth is element #83 on the Periodic Table of Elements. It is known as a post-transition metal. It has a relatively low melting-point of about 520 degrees F, which makes it easy to work with. Bismuth crystals form when the metal begins to cool from a molten state. The iridescent colors that bismuth crystals are usually known for are the result of an oxide tarnish.

Although it is relatively easy to make bismuth crystals, making high-quality crystals is a bit more difficult. First, you'll need several pounds of bismuth (99.99% pure). Second, a heating process. You can use a lab-quality heating plate, but you can also achieve the same results on a kitchen stove. Third is the extraction method. How you extract the crystals from the molten metal directly affects the types of crystals you create. Lastly, the cooling method. How quickly or slowly the crystal cools determines its colors.

Interests
Capitalism. 

I recently had an artist that I'd bought work from complain about the fact that I was selling their work for a profit.  They were especially upset that I'd gotten their name wrong when giving them credit for the artwork itself. 

Definitely my fault for jackin' up the name, but at least I was trying to give them credit for the work. 

Anyway, they asked that I no longer re-sell their work, since I was charging more than I bought it for.  You know, Capitalism.  I guess I was expected to sell it for a loss. 

Quick shout out to artists:  Once you sell your wares, you no longer own any rights to them.  I pay for it, I can do what I wish with it. 

P.S.:  Don't worry lady, I won't associate your name with your artwork when I sell it.  It would have probably helped you, but if you don't like it...

I have no idea what started you making these bismuth crystal creations, but GOD DAMN THEY'RE AMAZING! A beautiful colour scheme and a dynamic structure to each one gives a beautiful, unique structure to them. :)

All your bismuth crystals are so amazingly intricate and pretty!  Fantastic job making them!  Bismuth is such an awesome element!

I'm currently working on a project where I'm personifying the elements of the periodic table.  I've made a personification of Bismuth, if you're interested to see, heh-heh:
