Product Description

For sale is a bismuth on quartz from Wolfram Camp, Qld. A beautiful, very rich, metallic, crystallized,  bismuth, interspersed with quartz. The lustre ranges from absolutely splendid to nearly matte. This mine has been closed for more than twenty years. This specimen came out of a very old collection, from the beginning of last century, that was acquired by Phil Perkins, I obtained it from Phil. I find native elements that crystalize facinating. An interesting thing about bismuth, is it is the only metal that contracts when heated!. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
