    Bismuth is awesome, even though its lab grown. I recently researched this. I thought bismuth was very very rare. So why was it being sold in rock shops for such a small price? Bismuth is a natural element. It's slightly radioactive but it's half-life is so long that it might as well be considered stable. It's easy to tell that the specimen pictured above is lab grown because of its Hoppered shape and natural bismuth isn't rainbow colored.

    This has got to be one of the coolest mineral, crystal formations I have ever seen! Bismuth is a brittle metal with a white, silver-pink hue, often occurring in its native form with an iridescent oxide tarnish showing many colors from yellow to blue. The spiral stair stepped structure of a bismuth crystal is the result of a higher growth rate around the outside edges than on the inside edges.

    A rock so fantastically beautiful that it's hard to believe is real This looks like some 3D rendering of a fantastic alien matter that can't possibly exist on Earth. But, being the amazing planet we live in, it is actually a real thing: "A bismuth crystal illustrating the many iridescent refraction hues of its oxide surface." We live in a wonderful world, people.
