    Bismuth

    Bi - 1.CA.05(Strunz) 
    (from Germany, grown lab)

    Here we have some Native bismuth ‘crystals’. They form as a ‘hopper’ type of crystal network. They have a bright metallic luster and show a beautiful iridescent rainbow play of colors. Bismuth is the last element to decay in the universe. The average life of an estimated 20 trillion years. It is equally rare in the crust than gold.

    My internet connection was not cooperating  so I drew some gemstone spiders instead. I´ve been sort of obsessed with learning how to draw shiny surfaces and these were fun to make
