One of my bismuth crystals.

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 stores. 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.

Bismuth Crystal Fanatics, Unite!


I'm looking for artists of all types. I've just published my new website (with a grand total of 3 items for sale) and I'm trying to find others that might want to get into it. The site is brand-new, but functional. I'm wanting to flesh it out with different products.


bismuthcrystalcreations.com/


Anything that is related to bismuth crystals is welcome.


Brief (and incomplete) list of what I'm looking for:


Paintings, watercolors, whatever...artistic renderings of crystals are definitely cool.

Shirts, caps etc...Silkscreen artists are invited.

Resin-embedding artists are also very welcome.

Any out-of-the-box idea.


In the end, if it has something to do with bismuth crystals I want it in my store. And everything is negotiable.

It would be fun to watch how you made your bismuth art.  Youtube maybe?  :)

Not anytime soon.  Maybe after I just can't physically make them anymore, I'll publish a book and video.

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. :)
