Bismuth is a dense metal with about 86% the density of lead. The symbol for bismuth is Bi. It has an atomic weight of 208.9804 and its atomic number is 83. The iridescent colors that are seen on the surface of the crystals if formed during oxidation along with its obvious crystal formations.
Bismuth is one of the first 10 elements ever to be discovered. It was originally believed to be stable, but in 2003 it was discovered to be slightly radioactive with a half-life more than a billion times the age of the universe. This means that its radioactivity is negligible. Bismuth compounds are used to make cosmetics pigments and pharmaceuticals such as Pepto Bismol.
This undoubtedly beautiful element is suspended in crystal clear lucite acrylic.
One of my favorite elements bc it’s in pepto bismol
:-P colors are gorgeous on this sample and it arrived quick during the holiday season. I’ve purchased several orders from engineered labs and they’re a solid company. I’ll continue ordering from them! 5 stars, highly recommend!
Arrived in perfect condition. The husband was thrilled. Will buy again!
bismuth is my favorite element so I was excited to get my hands on this cube, it arrived in clean condition, however, it was a little off center--yall should put some disclaimer or make sure the element is centered
Is very nice
